Los Vencedores De Carabayllo Group's story

Marlene Aurora is 41 years old and has three children. She is a member of the group "Los Vencedores de Carabayllo" [The Victorious of Carabayllo], formed by five members who are all residents of the Carabayllo district. Marlene Aurora has made a living for two years in the attention and care of the elderly. She studied and prepared herself to be able to use her knowledge to help the elderly. She has diverse experiences, both good and sad, but she considers this to be part of her job. She needs to equip herself with the instruments and materials for the different types of care that she gives, which is why she requested the loan. These instruments are expensive; therefore, little by little she will acquire them.

In this group: Marlene Aurora, Elizabeth Susan, Luis Alfredo, Josefina, Rosa Nelly
