Valor Y Sacrificio Community Lending Group's story

Valor y Sacrificio Communal Bank

Hilaria is one of the 12 members of the Valor y Sacrificio (“Courage and Sacrifice”) Communal Bank, which has already been working with EDAPROSPRO-PROSPERIDAD for almost 3 years. In this time, the members have completed several of their plans and projects.

At 42 years old, Hilaria is the mother of two children who are already independent. She works selling artisanal products, which she distributes from her home. She is also learning about the production of these crafts in all their possible varieties so that she herself can create them and increase her profit margins. She began making woven wool products such as sweaters, hats, gloves, etc.

Hoping one day to have a store, she plans to learn more about artisanal work and use the current loan to buy artisanal crafts to sell. Her biggest dream is to have and rent out her own store and a mototaxi.

In this group: Hilaria, Hilaria, Teofila, Esmeralda, Clementina, Karen Selene*, Irma Yessenia, Leily Carol, Brigida, Lucy Yolanda, Kelly Cinthia, Ana Luz
