Gotitas De Amor Group's story

The Gotitas D. Amor (“Little Drops of Love”) Village Bank is a new group that is just starting out with fifteen members, who after weeks of training are very happy to get started. The group members are involved in a variety of businesses: they sell cell phones, bread, cakes, vegetables, firewood, plastics, clothing for children and adults, grains, and catalog cosmetics. The group members sell from home, on delivery, on the street and in several of the city’s markets. They are each requesting different loan amounts, like 300, 600 or 750 soles. The group is requesting a total of 5,700 soles. Group members will use their loans to buy carrots, onions, firewood, bags, t-shirts, sweaters, blouses, wheat, barley and corn. The group members dream of owning their own homes, of expanding their businesses, of providing their children with all the best and a good education.
