Las Carinositas Group's story

The “Las Cariñositas” (The Affectionate Ones) communal bank has 8 members; six woman and two men. The bank president is Julieta, 46. She’s married and has two children who are 10 and 11 years old. She sells food in her sales stand located in the city of Cochabamba’s Cruce Taquiña zone.

This loan is her second sequence in the institution and Julieta is going to use the loan to buy ingredients for her dishes like rice, noodles and potatoes at wholesale in order to offer a variety of dishes to her customers. Her reason for requesting the loan is to continue buying supplies and improving her income this way. Julieta is a very hardworking woman who feels happy for the opportunity being given her and her fellow group members because often they are the people who are raising their families by themselves.

In this group: Julieta, Oscar, Anahi Patricia, Lucy Irma, Maria Ines, Nelio, Maria Monica, Marcelina
