Las Alondras Group's story

Sra. Julia S. is an enthusiastic and enterprising native of Cuzco. She is 40 years old, separated, and has three children, who are the inspiration in her life. Her home is located in UCV 22 Lt. 8 Zona A - Huaycan district of Ate in the state of Lima. Currently, Julia is president of the communal bank "Las Alondras", which is made up of 11 members devoted to diverse activities. These include the sale of beauty products, a nursery school, the sale of clothing and more. The communal bank has worked with EDAPROSPO - Prosperidad for 2 years and 11 months.

Julia devotes her time to the wholesale and retail sale of imported clothing, and has been in business for 8 years. She began the business after separating from her husband due to marital problems. She began by selling to her friends little by little with the idea of moving forward without falling into a depression. With a loan of S/1000.00, she will invest in winter clothes. Julia has two great desires: to obtain her own shop, and to give her children a good education so that they can become professionals.
