Tarpuy Group's story

The communal bank "Tarpuy" is comprised of 11 responsible, hard-working members who improve day by day. Mirian, 39, is married and has three children, two of which are still in her care. In an effort to support her household and have her own business, Mirian decided to start a fruit selling business which she does as a street vendor. She is proud of the fact that she is able to give her family a better quality of life through her hard work.

The loan she requests is to buy fruits such as apples, tangerines, bananas, grapes, etc. Mirian's desire is to see her children become professionals. The "Tarpuy" group is grateful to the people who make this loan possible. Mirian is the third from the right dressed in a lavender top and sweater.
