Mujeres Activas Group's story

This group consists of responsible individuals who engage in different commercial activities. All of them reside in the District of Vitarte and are members of the Communal Bank “Mujeres Activas” (Active Women).

One of the members is Sra. Jacinta. She is 53 years old, single, and has four children. Sra. Jacinta has been selling vegetables (potatoes, corn, onions, as well as groceries) for 26 years. By working at her small store every day, Jacinta is able to move forward by paying for her children’s schooling and the household expenses. Her greatest wish is to see her children become professionals. For this reason, Sra. Jacinta works very hard. The loan she is receiving will be invested in the purchase of more vegetables so that she can have more income.

Sra. Jacinta is the first person on the left-hand side (from the group’s perspective) who is wearing a purple blouse. She bids farewell with a hug to Kiva and says that she plans to accomplish all of her goals.

In this group: Jacinta, Sofia, Zonia, Nimia, Jackeline
