Mi Banquito Group's story

Ciceli is 34 years old and has two young children who are dependent on her. They have been her motivation to continue making progress.

Like most people in Matucana region, Ciceli farms. She grows and sells flowers and alfalfa. This is a family business that she has been carrying on as her parents also used to work in this field. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, Ciceli has managed to provide for her children. She also tells us that she is currently building a hotel as she is planning to provide accommodation to tourists who visit the area. Ciceli's wish is to build her house as they have given her a plot of land in her community.

On this occasion, Ciceli requested a loan for her business. She will buy seeds and fertilizers for her crops. The 'Mi Banquito' community bank is a group with ten hard-working members. Ciceli is one of the founding members and she is the group's president. In the photo, she is on the right, wearing a brown jacket, holding a blue 'Prosperidad' jacket.

In this group: Ciceli Esmeli, Rosa, Victoria Elena, Nicolas, Lita Noemi, Ketti Milagritos, Faustina Clelia, Benita Filomena, Janet Juliana, Jaqueline Jeannine
