A loan of $1,600 helped a member buy more 'Unique' cosmetics to sell.


Santa Rosa De Lima -Jauja Group's story

Elva is an enterprising and combative woman who is 41 years old and single with a young son of school age. She is a member of the new Santa Rosa de Lima – Jauja communal bank. At present, she sells cakes and, also, 'Unique' cosmetics. As we can see, Elva dedicates her time to many jobs, with the intention of improving herself each day and providing her son with a better quality of life and a better education. She is requesting a loan to buy more Unique cosmetics in order to generate more income and at the same time, to have more products to offer. In the future, Elva would like to have a store in the commercial zone, so she can better display these Unique products. In the photo, Elva is wearing a black coat and a mustard coloured polo shirt, and is located to the left of the woman in the white sweater.
