Nueva Amistad De Huascar Group's story

Clemencia belongs to the "Nueva Amistad de Huascar" Community Bank. This group is made up of 7 people who all decided to bestow the post of group president upon her. This group has already been working with Edaprospo-Prosperidad for 7 1/2 years. It was formed on the advice of a friend of Clemencia's, and Clemencia searched for people to form the group. Clemencia is 43 and is a single mother of 4 children, of whom 2 are dependent (minors), and 2 are independent (of legal age). Clemencia has worked in a craft workshop for 15 years and makes earrings and necklaces. With her income from this business, she has been able to stock her house with items- furniture, cabinets, a stove, a microwave, a tv, etc. Clemencia plans to invest this loan from Edaprospo-prosperidad in her art workshop, but her dream is to be able to export her products in order for her business to grow.

In this group: Clemencia, Margot Cecilia, Sonia Miluska, Julia Patricia, Cristina Karin*, Luz Maria, Yoselin Justina
