Mujeres Emprendedoras De Micaela Bastidas Group's story

The Communal Bank named “Mujeres Emprendedoras D. Micaela Bastidas” is in the District of Ate Vitarte. The group consists of ten members from this area and is represented by Sra. Diana Lourdes.


Sra. Diana is 44 years old, single, and has a 23 year old son who currently works with her. She manages a photocopy and typing center from a rented location near her home. Diana started her photocopy business thirteen years ago.


The “Mujeres Emprendedoras D. Micaela Bastidas” Communal Bank has been working with EDAPROSPO – Prosperidad for two years. The members are involved in different activities, such as making plush toys and operating informal retail businesses. Sra. Diana, for example, will use this current loan to buy merchandise for her business. All of the other members need additional capital to achieve greater production, get a better share of the market, and attract more customers. They have great dreams and goals and are very grateful to the Institution for the support that has been provided. In addition, they commit to completing their payments and continuing their work toward their savings.
