Grupo Triunfador Group's story

The “Grupo Triunfador” (Triumphant Group) communal bank has eleven members; single mothers with 20 children under their care. They are originally from Sauce, located in the northern area of the country. They are known for being responsible, hard working and with a strong drive towards personal development. Unfortunately, because of lack of economic resources they couldn’t go to school. They felt obligated from a very young age to help with household expenses.

Thanks to their efforts and desire to come out ahead, the coordinator is Rosalpina. She has a ‘pulpería’, a small store that sells food products such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, detergent, eggs, cream, ice, juices, fizzy drinks... She spends 12 hours daily at her business selling her products. Her business is located in her house. The aim for the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business in the buying and selling of food products, so that in the near future she can gain a better income.
