Yrupe Group's story

The committee is called “Yrupe” because that’s the name of a street in the neighborhood. They’ve taken on the commitment of keeping the group together and to work with mutual respect and responsibility. They are currently in the 6th cycle with a grade of “excellent” and there are 15 women members.

One of them is Apolinaria who says that she works selling milk. She starts work very early in the morning in order to provide her customers with a product they need on their tables for breakfast. She’s requesting the loan to buy milk to stock up and continue filling customer orders.

In this group: Juana Bautista, Apolinaria, Claudia, Inocencia, Rosa, Adolfina, Luz, Manuela, Leonor, Elena, Juana, Simona, Benedicta, Norma*, Luz*
