Las Triunfadoras De Marko Jara Group's story

The women of the "Las Triunfadoras de Marko Jara" are requesting a loan of 7,900 Nuevo Soles to fund their various endeavours. The Triunfadoras (or “The Triumphant”) formed as a communal bank less than one year ago. Because they are a new group, their loan amounts are small, varying between three and eight hundred Nuevo Soles. They meet monthly in one bank member’s home on Pomorrosa Street in a suburb of Pucallpa, Peru. The city is a bustling regional capital and major transportation hub of the Amazon River basin area in eastern Peru. The construction of the highway fifty years ago, linking Pucallpa to Lima, marked the beginning of a new epoch for the booming capital. No other city in the jungle is connected to the country’s capital by a paved road; for this reason, all major shipping throughout the Amazon Basin to Lima passes through Pucallpa.

The women of this communal bank all work in and around Pucallpa, operating small businesses from corner stores out of their homes to stalls in local markets. The majority of the women in the "Las Triunfadoras de Marko Jara" bank sell some sort of product for a living. The Triunfadoras are requesting loans of individual amounts, but they collectively guarantee the repayment of the entire bulk loan. The bank members will be using the loan to fund a variety of endeavors including: sales of vegetables, shoes, candy, bananas, furniture, and bottled drinks. Each woman will repay her portion of the bulk loan within the same four-month term.

The bank members requesting a group loan are: Milena Liliana G. F. (s/.500), Danitza Ivette M. T.(s/.500) , Ines Magaly G. F. (s/.800), Rosa O. P. (s/.800), Graciela P. R. (s/.800), Teresa D.
