Las Abejitas-Chupaca Group's story

Noemi is one of the members of the Las Abejitas - Chupaca communal bank. She is known for being very happy and hardworking. She is 25 years old and has two children, ages 7 and 11, who are still studying.

Noemi has been with the group for two years. She likes belonging to the communal bank because everyone is very hardworking and punctual in making their payments.

She sells vegetables wholesale and retail in the local market. Thanks to the sales of her produce, she helps her partner to take care of their young children.

She will invest the loan that she received in the purchase of her products, because sales increase during the Christmas season. Noemi is very happy to know that people from another country are supporting her unconditionally, without ever meeting her.

In this group: Estela, Noemi Liz, Marili Pamela, Aurelio Nestor, Ida Elvia, Cresenciana, Raul*, Diana Soledad, Ingrid Karen
