Sagitario Group's story

The communal bank called "Sagitario" is located in Huachipa, in the Ate district. The group is represented by Justina, and has 10 members who are from this area. Justina is 45 years old, married, and has 4 children, aged 26, 24, 19 and 15 years. The youngest are school-aged. She has been in the business of raising pigs for 17 years.

This group has worked with EDAPROSPO-Prosperidad for a year. The members are devoted to different activities such as the sale of fast food in the markets, the sale of juices, snacks and clothing. With the loan that was recently granted, Justina will pay school fees for her child, since her greatest dream is to see him become a professional. The other members will increase their capital so that they can have higher productivity, improve their position in the market, and attract more customers. The members of the group have big dreams and goals, and they are very grateful to the institution for all of the support provided. They pledge to make their payments, and to continue working so that they will not let down the lenders.

In this group: Flora, Bertha, Justina, Saturnina, Antonia, Victoria*, Paulina, Maria Rosa, Teresa Dionicia, Celia Claudia
