Camino Al Exito Group's story

The Camino al exito (Road to success) community outreach project is located in Ansieta Alta, an area in the district of El Agustino. The group has 11 members, all from the area, and is represented here by Rubi. Rubi is 48 years old and married with 4 children, one at university and one still school aged. She has operated a business for three years, making and selling hats, sweaters, skirts and blouses among other things. She decided to pursue this line of work after she had the opportunity to learn tailoring at a local church. They have worked with EDAPROSPO for 3 years. The members operate a range of businesses: sales of prepared food, juices, sweets, and clothes. Rubi is buying, with a recent loan, materials (fabric, thread, needles, etc.) to make the products she sells. The other members will increase their capital so that they become more productive or gain a better position in the market or capture more customers. The members have big dreams and goals and they are very grateful to the institution for the help it provides them. All are committed to repaying their loans, continuing their businesses and acting in good faith. (The children in the photo are children of the members.)

In this group: Maria Mercedes, Bonifacia, Rosa Petronila, Ruby, Maria Teresa, Carmen Rosa, Hilda, Patricia Carmela, Orfelinda, Constantina, Ruth
