A loan of $2,450 helped a member for her daughter’s professional certificate.


Grupo Hatarinas Group's story

The Hatarinas Communal Bank is located in the El Agustino area in the Lima department. It is comprised of ten members. They have been working with Edapropa-Prosperidad for one year. The members do diverse activities in production, commerce and service.

María del Carmen is the president. She is 44, married, and has three school age children. She has been selling coffee beans and providing internet service for one year. She started because she sold beauty products, and she had customers. She decided to sell coffee in the winter, and it was well received. So, she decided to continue this activity.

With the effort of her daily work, María del Carmen has bought appliances for her home. She has essentially helped with her children’s education because she wants them to become professionals.

She will use the loan for her daughter’s professional certificate.

All of our members are grateful for the support, and they are committed to making their payments according to Prosperidad’s timeline.
