A loan of $1,800 helped a member to buy wood and poles to support her husband in his work as chief bricklayer (he uses the wood and poles as support for roofs of houses and when he doesn't know whether they will be needed, he rents them which reduces his profit).


Las Violetas Group's story

Ana Bertha H., 42, lives with her common law husband and 3 children in the Horacio Zevallos area, district of Ate, department of Lima. She has worked with EDAPROSPO - Prosperidad for 3 years and currently occupies the role of president of the village bank "Las Violetas", made up of 10 partners who work in service and trade activities. Ana has worked in the sale of beauty products for 3 years, also doing handi-work like gluing sequins for the past year. With the new loan, she will invest in buying wood and poles to support her husband in his work as a chief bricklayer (he uses the wood and poles as support for roofs of houses and when he doesn't know whether they will be needed, he rents them which reduces his profit).


Until now, Ana has been able to build the walls of their house with concrete but in the future she would like to be able to roof their house, and with the help of her husband they can work together to make their dreams a reality.

In this group: Ana Bertha, Rosita, Edita, Yaquelin, Christopher Denis, Sarita, Dora Luz, Smith Jonathan, Christian Jhonny, Teresa
