Asociacion Las Tres Estrellas Group's story

The communal bank “Asociación Las Tres Estrellas” is maD. up of eight enterprising members who live in Santa Rosa, a district of El Agustino in the departament of Lima. They have been working with EDAPROSPO for four months.

Maximiliana is a member of the group and has recently taken on the position of president. She is 50 years old, has two children and lives with her D. facto. She has sold vegetables and tubers for three years, starting as a street vendor and later setting up a market stall.

Maximiliana’s dream is to set up a shop in her house.
