Cesar Vallejo De V.e.s Group's story

A group comprised of eight enterprising women with a great deal of creativity for business - such are the members of the "Cesar Vallejo V.E.S." communal bank. Mónica is 43 years old and single, and doesn't have any children. For the past three years she has been selling used clothing in a small market with the goal of getting ahead. Mónica reports that with a great deal of effort and hard work she has generated profits in order to afford her household expenses. In the future she'd like to own a small store of her own where she can sell her garments, and thus increase her profits. With the loan she obtained she'll purchase more clothing and therefore she'll be able to improve her earnings. At the same time, Mónica and all the members are grateful towards Kiva for the loan they obtained and for the trust that has been bestowed upon them. Mónica is sitting down, the first one from the left. She's seen wearing a long-sleeved green coat with stripes that form a squared pattern. She bids goodbye and promises that she'll accomplish all the goals she has set for herself.

In this group: Constantina, Anita , Ines Esperanza , Maruja Margarita , Cecilia , Monica Judith , Natalia Benardina
