Divino Niño Jesus - Chupaca Group's story

Antonia is a widow with 3 children in her care. She is the president of the "Divino Niño Jesus" ("Divine Child Jesus") loan group. Antonia sells medicines. She started with very little capital and her business is located in the main square of Chupaca in Huancayo. In the beginning her business was a bazaar. Thanks to her work she was able to complete her college education. Later, thanks to her brothers, who studied pharmacy, she was able to set up what has been until today her pharmacy "El AguiL." ("The Eagle").

Antonia became a widow 25 years ago and took charge of her children. Thanks to her efforts they are now young professionals. Antonia´s wish is for her business to continue to grow so as to be able to support her children through their master's degrees.
