Barrio Pincha - Chupaca Group's story

Greetings to all of you from your brother country of Peru. The Group Barrio Pincha-Chupaca, a group that now is initiating its fourth cycle, is characterized by its solidarity and hard workers. One of its members is Ms. Crecenciana, who is 54 years old, married with children who are older and a granddaughter. She began her business selling beer occasionally in the traditional festivals in her town. At the beginning she sold a little, but with the passing of time and seeing that her earnings were good, she pulled together a little capital to be able to sell more and grow her business. This way she bettered the quality of her life and that of her husband.

Her dream is to be able to purchase a tricycle to be able to carry to her clients (small stalls) the cases of beer. When they make orders today she has to carry them either by bringing little by little, or by renting a tricycle.

She and the other members of this group are completely grateful for the support that they have received through EDAPROSPO and the investors from KIVA. She is happy because her story will be known by other people with good hearts.

Cresenciana, wearing a bright green sweater and a white polo, is holding the hand of her small granddaughter.

In this group: Cresenciana, Lucy, Yeniffer*, Raul, Maria, Fredy Alcides, Javier, Lucila
