A loan of $4,900 helped a member to buy fabrics, buttons and threads to make clothes.

Virgen Purificada Group's story

The members belong to the “Virgen Purificada” communal bank. This bank is located in the district of Cusco, part of the province and department of Cusco.

The member in question is Marleny, she is a widow, 44 years old, and has two children. She works in her business selling clothes, making different types of clothes for parties and she also selling accessories for items of clothing. She owns a store where she works from 9:00am until 6:00pm; it is through this business that she gets her children ahead. Her dream is to expand and improve her store where she sells the clothes. Marleny seeks this loan to buy fabrics, buttons and threads to make the clothes.

The photographs of the members below the group photo were taken after the meeting because they had to leave for work. The other members work in a pizza business, a grocery store, a clothing business and a taxi service.

Marleny thanks those who have been part of this dream, and she promises to meet the repayments within the set time-frame.

In this group: Marleny, Rina Margarita, Zelmira Rosa, Luisa Libertad, Basilia, Edson*, Ruth Agripina*, Rosa America, Vilma, Flora Belinda, Ana Bertha, Maharani, Walter, Gregorio
