Santa Rosalia Group's story

A group of friends and neighbors from the town of Pilcopata formed the “Santa Rosalia” communal bank in the Paucartambo province a few years ago and things have been excellent. There are no industries, companies, or banks in this province, but there are large farmlands and therefore most of the residents are farmers, sell lumber, are merchants, or raise livestock.

Valeriana is 51 years old and lives in Pilcopata. She is a hardworking mother who gets her three children ahead, despite being separated from her husband. Despite all the adversities, she is a responsible and friendly person who gets ahead through her small motorcycle parts store located in her home. She needs a loan to buy more spare parts such as tires, and she needs it to increase her working capital.

The members are grateful for the opportunity and they are committed to make their payments on time.
