Yahve Yire Group's story

Marlene is a member of “Yahve Yire” Community Bank, made up of seven responsible people and where she holds the office of Secretary. Marlene tells us that she became a member of the group through an acquaintance who commented on the group. Marlene is mother to two children who depend on her and her husband. She works as a technical nurse in a health center, having already eleven years experience working in this role, and she also has a hot dog cart where she works three times a week where she can earn more income for her family. Thanks to her work and effort, Marlene was able to buy some land and build. Marlene's wish is to have a food business in her house where she can offer a variety of dishes. The loan obtained by Marlene will be invested in the necessities for her hot dog cart business such as oil, disposables, bread, sausages, etc. The “Yahve Yire” Community Bank has been participating in this prosperity program for four months and they are thankful and dedicated. Gustavo was not present at the meeting because he traveled to cover a town in the interior of Peru.

In this group: Marlene, Ana Maria, Miguel Angel, Gustavo*, Viviana Maria, Sonia Elvira, Rosa Del Pilar
