Acuario Group's story

Proselita is an enthusiastic and enterprising partner. She's 59-years-old, lives with a common-law husband, and has 4 children who are her motivation in life. Her house is located in Sol D. Vitarte in the department of Lima. Currently she acts as treasurer in the communal bank "ACUARIO," which is composed of 7 partners who perform various activities: sale of beauty products, wawa wasi (young child care in Peru), clothing sales, and others. The communal bank has worked with EDARPROSPO-Prosperity for 8 months.

Proselita has sold drinks (sodas, beer) for 59 years. She began in a market called "SOL D. VITARTE," where she saved up enough money to move her business to her home. With much hard work she finished the construction of her home and helped support her daughter, who studies in a private university. Proselita's greatest hope is that her daughter obtains her professional degree and that her sons have a place to live. With this loan she will buy merchandise to expand her business. All of our partners are very grateful for the support of the micro-company and they promise to make their payments within the established time frame.

In this group: Nelva, Proselita, Yoni Noe, Raquel Elena, Juan, Ana Maria, Madai Rosalina
