La Cruz De Yerbateros Group's story

Hello from Perú. This is a group composed of nine enterprising women with different commercial activities. They are members of the “La Cruz de Yerbateros” communal bank. One of them is Flor, 43, who is married and the mother of a son. She sells tamales (traditional regional dish) every day generating profits to cover her son’s school costs. Her greatest wish is to finish building her house. In future, she’d like to have a space of her own in which to sell her tamales and earn higher profits. She requested the loan to continue investing in her business because demand has increased and she needs to continue selling more tamales. At the same time, Flor and all the other group members are grateful to Kiva and Edaprospo for the loan granted and for the trust placed in them. She promises to meet all her set goals.
