A loan of $3,050 helped a member vehicle maintenance.


Virgen De Cocharcas Group's story

Elva C. Y. is the president of the Virgen de Cocharcas Community Bank. She is 35 and lives with her partner. She has three young children. Elva and the rest of the group members live in the El Tambo district. Elva owns a vehicle that she bought over two years ago, and she currently rents it to a young driver as a taxi. With this loan, she would like to invest in maintenance for the vehicle. She would like to buy new tires and the other spare parts that she needs; she would like to change the oil and the transmission liquid, for example. In the future, Elva would like to continue with her business renting the vehicle, and also build an apartment in her home to rent out. (In the photo, Elva is wearing a red, white and black striped sweater; she is seated and is the first from the left)
