Forging a Future has 10 members who live in San Juan D. Lurigancho and who have managed to overcome family and social problems.

Hilaria, 55, has two independent daughters; that is to say, each has her own family. Hilaria has a kiosk for which she has a municipal permit to operate. She sells snacks, candy, beverages, etc. She also has a Donofrio brand frozen treats cart and a portable telephone booth that people can make phone calls from.

She plans to have a small store in her home to sell food and home cleaning items. Her previous loans have maD. it possible for her to stock her kiosk with all the items her customers want. She has also been saving money and she hopes her savings will grow more and more until she has enough to buy everything she needs to set up her store like shelving, display cases, etc.
