Rosita De Los Angeles Group's story

The members belong to the Rosita de Los Angeles Communal Bank, located in the district, province, and department of Cusco. The member’s name is Celia. She is 43 years old, unmarried, and has two children. She works in the business of selling breakfast. She prepares quinoa con manzana (a typical dish made with whole grains and apples), maca (a native vegetable root of the radish family), milk, and other breakfast items. She sells her meals on foot from 6:00 am to 12:00 noon. Through this business, Celia gets her children ahead in life. Her dream is to have a location where she can sell her breakfasts. She is requesting this loan to repair her home and purchase construction materials such as cement, plaster, and sand.

The other members are in the business of selling cleaning products, chickens, cosmetics, and breakfast meals. Some members provide taxi services.
Celia is grateful to those who are a part of her dream by means of their participation in this program. She is committed to making her payments according to the established terms.
