A loan of $2,900 helped a member to buy merchandise for her grocery store.

Los Quinuales Group's story

Yudit is 41 years old and has 2 school-age children. She is the president of the 'Los Quinuales' community bank which is located in 9 D. Julio district, in the city of Huancayo, in Concepción province, Peru.

Yudit is a councillor in her town in Concepción. In addition, she owns a small grocery store and, in the future, she would like to open a 'locutorio' (an establishment that offers access to public telephones). However, as of yet there is still no telephone signal in her town. Yudit and her husband, who is a taxi driver, work hard so that they can get their family ahead in life and proviD. their children with a university education.

Yudit will use this loan to buy merchandise and stock her 'bodeguita' (a small store that sells essentials) with new products. In the photo, Yudit is wearing a beige-colored sweater and is sitting in the center.
