Valle Verde Group's story

The community of Rocchacc is located in the district of Anco, province of Churcampa, which is in the department of Huancavelica. Rocchacc is approximately 2100 meters (6890 ft) above sea level, a town economically based on agriculture of fruits and vegetables and in some cases the raising of livestock. The population has a medium level of commercial activity because Rocchacc is a passing point between Ayacucho and Huancayo.

The client Josefina M. T. is going to work with a loan of 200 Peruvian Nuevo Soles ($70 USD) and according to her testimony she states, "I have a small store where I sell groceries and other small things such as sweets; I do not have animals yet to graze, for now I only have my business and my fruit farm for chirimoya (native fruit) that I sell in the Larcay fair. In a few years I would like to leave Rocchacc and buy a house in Huancayo where business is good. Furthermore, I hope that my children study to become professionals after they are done with high school. In FINCA Perú I am going to save for my children´s future and for their education and also to develop my small store in the short-term. Now that I have joined FINCA Perú I am going to learn how to save, receive training, and the organization's values of working with more courage and responsibility."

The client Carmen T. V. is going to work with a loan of 200 Peruvian Nuevo Soles ($70 USD) and says the following: "I have a guinea pig and fruit farm and some cattle to sell when I need to. My dream is that my children study and are able to become professionals in the future. I am going to save for their education. Now that I have rejoined FINCA Perú I am going to save more because I have previously belonged to a village bank and I really like the training that the organization gave me. Furthermore I am going to work with more responsibility and save with more confidence because for the first time I have participated in an institution where they have returned my savings without any problems."
