The Cristo Rey D. Nicolás D. Piérola (Christ the King of Nicolás D. Piérola) communal bank is maD. up of 10 members who have various commercial activities and have been collaborating with Edaprospo for two years now.

Jazmín López, 24, is a communal bank member; she’s an enthusiastic and enterprising single mother of a 4-year-old daughter.
