Virgen De Chapi De Yanacoto Group's story

Feliciana is a member of the Virgen de Chapi de Yanacoto Communal Bank, which is made up of 11 enterprising women. Feliciana is 62 years old; she is a widow with three independent children. Over the course of her life, Feliciana has done different things for a living, such as cleaning, washing clothes, and also selling vegetables in a market, but she currently works in the maintenance department of a municipality. Feliciana is a hardworking woman who, thanks to her work, has been able to give her children an education and support one of her grandchildren in his education. Felicia's wish is to rent a stand in a market where she can sell her condiments and thus take care of herself in her old age. At the moment, she is asking for a loan to improve her home, as she wants to buy corrugated iron for her roof. The Virgen de Chapi de Yanacoto Communal Bank is thankful for the loan that has been offered.
