Virgen De Guadalupe - Chupaca Group's story

MarianeL. M. L. is a member of the Communal Bank “Virgen D. Guadalupe – Chupaca”. (She is the second person on the left wearing a gray cap.) She is a single mother with two children, ages 8 and 3 respectively. MarianeL. separated from her husband because of physical abuse, so her mother has provided her with both moral and financial support on several occasions. Her husband shows no interest in providing financial support for their children.

MarianeL.’s mother gave her two hens and four guinea pigs. She started a business raising animals from her home so that she could care for her young children. MarianeL. currently has 40 guinea pigs and 30 hens to generate income for her own subsistence.

(The woman standing behind the group is the mother of one of the members.)

The loan being provided to MarianeL. will be used to buy pigs so that she can sell them as part of her small business.

In this group: Marianela, Carlos Leoncio, Lidia Ruperta, Livia Elva, Cindy Karina, Joselin Antonet, Alejandro Ciro, Luz Liliana
