Virgen De Copacabana Group's story

Hilaria, 45, lives on block E in Huaycán. She’s married and has a son. She has been collaborating with Edaprospo for 8 years and for the last four months has been President of the “Virgen D. Copacabana” communal bank which has 15 members also devoted to that Virgin, thus the group name.

Hilaria used to sell cheese occasionally from home and also did cleaning jobs sometimes. But, for the last 5 years she has been working fulltime as a cheese merchant. She brings them from Huarochirí. The quality of the product and capital from Edaprospo has secured a good group of customers and merchandise to supply them. However, she hopes to set up her own store so that she can better support her son’s higher education.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Hilaria, Teodora, Felicitas, Lourdes, Yuli Ysabel, Olga*, Edith, Margarita, Yeni Lilian, Clementina, Nelida Erika, Faustina, Jorge
