Angel Group's story

MarceL. is a member of the Angel community bank. The bank is starting its 4th round with 10 members. MarceL., 29, has 4 children who range in age from 5- to 12-years old. She has operated a business selling clothing--jackets, trousers, shirts and sweaters--for 4 months, selling from her own stand in the Mariscal Caceres market. She got the stand from a friend who leased it to her.
MarceL. used to earn a living making and selling "salchipollo" (a traditional dish). The main obstacle for her now is that she doesn't have enough merchandise to stock her clothing business because it's just getting off the ground.
MarcelL. will use this loan to buy seasonal clothing. Trousers and jackets, for example. MarceL. has been a member of FINCA Peru for all 4 rounds and what she most likes about the meetings are the skills that she's learned. Her goal, as president of the group for this round, is for all the members to be up to date with both their payments and attendance.

In this group: Marcela, Marcelino, Eulogia, Ida, Encarnacion, Julia, Gregorio, Daniel, Giovana Susy, Jesus Edgar
