A loan of $3,250 helped a member buy clothes to sell.

La Hermandad Group's story

Hilaria D. L. C. has worked since she was a little girl. She knew that was the only way to progress and get ahead. She worked in her beloved Huancayo, where the people are characterized as being very hard-working. She has demonstrated this for her entire life, and she has done everything. She sold cheese, honey, and potatoes, etc. She also worked in a candy factory, and ice cream parlor, and a piñata shop. In reality, she has done a little of everything.

Hilaria got married when she was only 15, and she never stopped worked. When she was working as a household employee, her niece told her about Edaprospo. That is why she is once again motivated to work to support herself. With her first loan she bought clothes to take to sell in Huancayo. As this went well , her trips increased. Now her daughter-in-law helps her sell the stuffed animals and clothes she brings from Lima, . She also helps her brother, who has a sweater factory. With her income and earnings she is able to cover the cost of supporting her family and, above all, the six grandchildren that she helps.

Her biggest desire is to buy a piece of land in Lima and place her own store there where she could sell everything. This would be something secure because many times her business is down and she does not have sales.

With her recent loan she will buy clothes and other items to take to Huancayo to sell. With the Christmas festivities there will be a lot of sales, and she is sure that it will go very well.
