Virgen Maria Group's story

EThe community bank Virgen Maria is located in the community of Chaccarillos, in the District of Yauli, in Huancavelica. This community is in an area with lots of livestock farming. The community is very pretty because it is forested with Eucalyptus trees.

Antonia S. used to sell knitted socks. Now with the loan that she will receive she will buy pigs and chickens to sell. With the money we lend her, she wants to buy more animals in order to have a farm. Her goal is to buy a cow and so improve her business and help with the studies of her children.

Aquilina H. is very sad because one of her children passed away. Her business is the sale of cheese and guinea pigs that she takes to Lima. With your loan she will increase her business and with the savings buy a television for her children.

Raymunda M. is a commercial carrier. She helps her husband in this business and helps to sell cheese, milk, chickens, and eggs. Raymunda was hospitalised for breast cancer. She has been operated on and now she feels better, she has the drive to continue working in order to help her family.
