A loan of $2,350 helped a member to buy potatoes by the load.

Las Preferidas Group's story

The group is composed of 8 people whose governing board is composed thus: the President, Juana, lives in her own house located in Mayu Molino, Chiñata, with her children and husband. She is a good leader. Her main activity is selling potatoes at the Sacaba Potato Cancha (open air market). She will use the money from the loan to buy potatoes by the load.

The Secretary is Rocío. She lives in the family home in the zone and sells Salchipapas (fried potatoes with fried sausage) at home. With the money from the loan she will buy potatoes to make her salchipapas.

The group members know each other very well because 70% of them have neighboring sales stands at the Sacaba potato market. Because of this they are very united; they see each other almost daily so are always in communication. The only male in the group is a doorman at the school next door to his house; he is not in the photo. The group is asking for the loan to invest in their businesses.

In this group: Juana, Nancy, Rocio, Dony Mery, Maria Dle Carmen, Martha, David, Corina
