A loan of $3,600 helped a member to buy a food processor.

Los Triunfadores Del Rimac Group's story

The “Los Triunfadores del Rimac” community bank has ten members. Gladys is one of these members. She has two children and is currently separated. She sells empanadas and hot chocolate that she prepares herself as an itinerant street vendor. Gladys has the support of her children who are currently working as interns. In addition, she also rents out some rooms in her home to university students since her home is near a university that is very popular with young people from the center of the country.

In order to make her work producing the products that she sells easier, Gladys will invest her loan money in buying a food processor. The 'Los Triunfadores del Rimac' community bank is one of the first in the program in this area and its members are always demonstrating their desire to get their families ahead in life. They are grateful for the support they are receiving for their businesses.

In the photo, all the members of the bank are present, including some of their children. The only member who was absent, for work reasons, was Cesar.

In this group: Cesar Rufino*, Erlinda Ysmenia, Emilia, Susana, Niria Rosalina, Gladys Del Milagro, Epifania, Esther, Elizabeth, Monica Olga
