Los Quinuales - Concepcion Group's story

Good Day! Accept warm greetings from all your friends here in Peru. Today we present to you “Los Quinuales - Concepción” Communal Bank, which is made up of eight members who have known each other for more than a year.

One of the members of this group is Clotilde, 56, who has 3 children. Eight years ago she was widowed and had to assume the responsibilities of her household alone. Thanks to her efforts she was able to educate her children and has one who is in the university. She is a hardworking woman who knew how to move her children ahead with the income she earned by selling groceries, which is her principal business. She also works in the orchard in her community in the afternoons. She will use the loan to purchase the merchandise she will sell in her small store, such as rice, sugar, milk, noodles, etc.

Clotilde is very happy because people who are not from her country are very interested in her story and in the dreams that each one of the members of her group has. For that she wants to thank each one of the members of Kiva and the team at Edaprospo for collaborating in her progress.

Clotilde is the first person from the left in the photo. On the upper left side are Fabiola, wearing a lilac sweater, and Lupe with a turquoise turtleneck.

In this group: Clodilte Isidora, Doris, Soledad, Teofila, Lupe, Madeline Susan, Fabiola Rocio, Emilia
