Nuevos Emprendedores Alto Cenepa Group's story

Greetings from Peru! This group is named “Nuevos Emprendedores Alto Cenepa”.

Pascualina is the group president. She is a single mother of five children, but only one is still under her care. Pascualina is in the recycling business. She buys and sells bottles, cans, cardboard, plastic, paper, iron, and other materials. Pascualina started this business 13 years ago because she was not earning enough income. She previously worked as a cook at a popular diner.

Pascualina will use her loan as additional capital since she already has several customers. Her dream is to expand her business, so she hopes to acquire several tricycles and a cargo truck so that she can transport all of her materials. In the photo, Pascualina is the woman standing in the middle of the group. She is extremely pleased and appreciative of the help she has received, which gives her the drive to press forward.

In this group: Ymax Micaela, Karen Liszet, Pascualina, Crisitian, Nohely
