Solidaridad De Jicamarca Group's story

The members of the 'Solidaridad de Jicamarca' have a great desire to do well and make progress. The bank is named after the town where its members live. The group has six members, mainly women, and each member has a life story and a story of how they have improved themselves throughout their lives. One member in particular is 36-year-old Julia who lives with her partner and has three children. One of her children is already an adult and the other two are still in her care. Julia's business is knitting and finishing off sweaters. She also occasionally makes woven products to order. She started out in this business as she used to work in a sweater factory. Through the effort of her work and the support of her partner, Julia has been able to build a second floor on her home and, over time, enjoy a better quality of life. She will invest this loan in buying yarn so that she can begin filling the orders that she has for sweaters. In the future, she would like to set up a hardware business to make more income for herself and her family.

In this group: Julia Ricardina, Eugenia, Juan Carlos, Lilian Mribel, Viviana Monica, Benedicta
