Santa Rosa De Pachaclla Group's story

The Santa Rosa D. PachaclL. Communal Bank belongs to the community of PachaclL. located in the Yauli district of Huancavelica. It's a very cold place and there are markets on Sunday. It's a very lovely area and there are animals called llamas everywhere. Every month they shave the wool of the alpacas and sheep. The principle activities are raising cattle, agriculture and handicrafts and the inhabitants are tradesmen.

Victoria T. sells cheeses and makes shawls. Now she will expand her business selling vegetables in the Sunday market. Her biggest challenge is facing an issue at home because her husband is a male chauvinist.

Ana María Otañe sells small, multicolored balls of wool in the markets. She is grateful to FINCA because before, she had not received any loans because no one trusted her. Now she is learning to save and with the loans is nurturing her business. Ana María dreams of having a wool store.

Beatríz S. knows how to spin alpaca, vicuna and sheep's wool and sells woven socks, sweaters and gloves. With the loans she is going to buy supplies for her business and will increase her sales.

In this group: Victoria, Teodora, Rufina, Marcelina, Eusebia, Antonia, Beatriz, Nieves, Sabina, Victor Concepcion, Ana Maria, Simona
