Virgen De Guadalupe De Santa Clara Group's story

Greetings from Perú. The communal bank “Virgen de Guadalupe de Santa Clara” is comprised of 9 responsible members who are involved in various business activities. They all reside in the district of Ate Santa Clara.

One member is Carla, who is a single mother of two children. For the last 7 years she has been selling groceries and vegetables including potatoes, corn and onions in a small market. She works every day to get ahead and be able to send her children to school and cover the household expenses.

Her greatest wish is to see her children have professional careers. It is for this reason that she works so hard.

She will invest the loan proceeds in groceries for resale so that she can increase her income. In closing she sends her warm wishes to Kiva and Edaproso and says that she hopes that they achieve all of their goals.

In this group: Heraclio, Carla, Vilmar, Raquel, Hilda, Marlene, Alithu *, Blanca , Kattyuska
