Familia Group's story

The Familia Village Bank is a new bank with 19 members, who after weeks of training are happy to begin their first loan cycle. Each of the members was invited to participate by the loan officer, and most of them live in the San Felipe and June 11th neighborhoods. The group members are involved in a variety of businesses, like grains, sweets, basic dry goods, meat, vegetables, firewood, cosmetics, and food sales. Some sell from their homes, while others are street or market vendors. The group members are requesting different loan amounts, like 300, 600 or 900 soles, and the group as a whole is requesting a total of 8,700 soles. They will use their loans to buy rice, sugar, pasta, meat, wheat, barley, cookies, caramels, cosmetics, firewood and wood. The group members dream of owning prosperous businesses, owning their own stores (as opposed to renting), that their children will grow up to be working professionals, and of owning their own homes.
