A loan of $3,350 helped a member buy clothing at wholesale prices.


32-Las Guerrilleras Group's story

The 32-LAS GUERRILLERAS Bank has eight members, all of them women who earn their living in a variety of ways. President of the bank is Sra. Yesmi who is wearing a fuschia-coloured t-shirt in the photo. She is 24 years old and married with a 3-year old son. Yesmi earns her living selling clothing in the busy market of La Cancha.

This is Yesmi's first loan with the institution and she plans to use the money to buy merchandise. The biggest challenge she faces is competition. She will use the profits she makes to buy more goods and in this way generate more income; she has sole responsibility for supporting her family.

In this group: Tania Esperanza, Yesmy, Blanca Patricia, Apolonia , Rosa, Marisol, Nora, Marianela
