Santa Rosita De Huaytara Group's story

The members of the Santa Rosita de Huaytara communal bank are starting their second loan cycle. They are from the district of Huaytara. Solange is in a common-law marriage. She has two children, ages 14 and 7, who are still in school. She sells cosmetics from catalogs to her friends and family. She divides her time between her business and her housework. In her spare time, she goes out to sell her products. Since becoming a member of her communal bank, Solange has learned to be responsible. The loans have helped to increase her inventory. With the loan she is requesting, she will buy cosmetics on sale which she will sell at a profit. Solange dreams of her two daughters becoming professionals and of owning a cosmetics store for herself.
