Vicuñitas De Tunari Group's story

The group "Vicunitas del Tunari" is represented by Mrs. Liliana Ella who just like her partners has a large family maD. up of five members. The members are hardworking and responsible people. In general they are involved in the sale of merchandise such as clothing, handicrafts, vicuna (an animal related to the llama) blankets, sneakers, groceries, auto parts, and home construction. Within any market there always exists the competition of supply and demand, and these women have learned to deal with it by rotating their merchandise in order to place on sale the items of the season. Some of them are not able to do it on time and are left with items that are out-of-season and difficult to sell to demanding customers. It is for this reason that sometimes the members are late with their payments. The purpose of the loan is to increase merchandise for the Christmas season during which there is a greater demand for their products as well as for the purchase of work tools for the men. Their experience within the realm of solidarity groups is good since some of the members of this group participated in other loans with other groups and were able to pay punctually. There exists a family kinship within this group between Marisol and Gonzalo who are brother and sister but they have totally independent incomes.

In this group: Juliana, Julia Alicia, Maria, Luisa, Eusebia*, Luisa, Marisol, Gonzalo, Felipa, Paula*, Martha, Sonia, Jhovana Esperanza*, Lupe, Catalina Martha
