Juntos Por El Progreso Group's story

These entrepreneurs belong to the “JUNTOS POR EL PROGRESO” [“Together for progress”] Communal Bank. This bank is located in the district, province, and department of Cusco.

One of the group’s members is Marcelina. She is 49 years old, is in a common-law marriage, and has 7 children. She makes a living selling clothing such as pants, polo shirts, blouses, and jackets. She sells these items as an independent vendor. Marcelina works from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM, and through her business she is giving her children a good start in life. Her dream is to have her own space for her clothing business.

Marcelina is asking for a loan so she can purchase pants, polo shirts, jackets, and sweaters wholesale. The other members of her group make a living from activities such as selling plastic, selling cosmetics, operating a telephone call center, and running a bar.

Marcelina is grateful to everyone who is helping to make her dream possible and is committed to making all of her loan payments on time.

In this group: Marcelina, Felipe , Vilma , Johanna*, Maria Exaltacio, Dina, Natalia, Paulina, Griselda, Alicia, Wendy Helen, Juan Bautista
