La Esperanza Del Valle Group's story

Sra. Gardenia is 34 years old and has a 14 year old daughter who is her inspiration and incentive to strive and work each day to move forward and proviD. everything necessary so that she can become a professional. She is a member of the group “La Esperanza del Valle” (The Hope of the Valley), which consists of ten individuals who live in the development of Luciana in the district of Carabayllo. Her fellow members elected her to be the treasurer of the group’s Board of Directors.


Sra. Gardenia has been selling clothing and beauty products for three years, offering her goods to relatives and friends. She began selling beauty products through catalogs, but later her customers started placing orders for clothing. This encouraged her to build up an inventory of merchandise. With this business, she will be able to have operating capital to maintain a stock of beauty products as well as clothing. Sometime later on she would like to start another business providing Internet services.


The loan she is requesting will be invested in the purchase of winter clothing for children, teenagers, and adults since she has already received orders.

In this group: Gardenia, Rosario Del Pilar, Sara Edith, Julia Gaudencia, Hector Evaristo, Gladys Nila, Hilda Flor, Luis Alberto, Elizabeth Milagros, Eva Tereza*
