Santa Rosa De Huaquillay Group's story

Rosemary is 41 years old, married, and the mother of three small children. She lives in Huaquillay, in the district of Comas. Five years ago she joined the group Santa Rosa de Huaquillay, whose 9 members elected her to be secretary of the group. For nine years Rosemary has earned a living by mending clothing. She started making clothes when she was 18 and decided to start her own business, which has offered her economic stability and enabled her to help her husband with food costs. Her greatest wish is for her children to have good careers. She will use the requested loan to purchase a stock of clothing.
