Quiere Al Niño Group's story

“Quiere al Niño” is a community bank made up of 12 enthusiastic and enterprising members, who pursue different activities, including production, trade and services. They have worked with EDAPROSPO Prosperidad for four years. Dionisia Victoria, who is the president of the group, is 50 years old, lives with her partner and has five children, all of whom are independent. For 8 years, she has been crocheting textiles by hand. She started this business because she had worked in a factory, where she learned this skill, and decided to pursue it independently. At present, she works with a client, who exports her products. She is also involved in Horacio Zevallos’ popular restaurant, and she helps a priest as a social assistant and works to help members of the community in different areas in the eastern part of Lima. Because of her hard work, she has succeeded in sending her children to a university and in improving the quality of her life. This loan will be used to buy materials for her business. All of our members agree to help each other and commit to pay the loan installments.

In this group: Marilu Elena, Dionisia Victoria, Yolanda, Elias, Tania Lidia, Fiorella Lucia*, Noemi, Milagros, Cristina, Judith Margot, Maria Luz, Livia Elena
