Caminando Juntas Group's story

The "Caminando Juntas" (running together) bank has worked with the institution for eight cycles. The women live in the town of Salome and Pampahasi. They live near the office and the president is Juana. She has four children and is a widow. She works selling vegetables from a rented shop. The money requested is to buy toys that she will take to another city for this season of Christmas since this seasonal activity generates good income. The treasurer is Sonia who also sells vegetables. She is married. Her husband is a salaried driver. They have three children. They live in a rented home. One of her goals is to buy some land but, this time, she requests the loan to sell vegetables at wholesale. The women are responsible and hard-working people who feel thankful to the institution for the support provided.

In this group: Sonia, Juana, Pacesa Felicid, Guillermina Erminia, Sandra, Marcia Emeteria, Giovanna, Andrea
