Yrupe Group's story

The group called “Yrupe” has 13 members. All of these women want to take charge and strive on behalf of their families. They are currently in their seventh loan cycle. All of them have done their bit in order to get ahead.

One of these determined women is Apolinaria, who sells cheese. She is looking to earn more income so that she can provide what her family needs. Apolinaria knows that the only way for this to happen is to work and persevere. She is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of cheeses. Since Holy Week is approaching, she will have more orders and will need to fulfill them.

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