Santa Rosa De Yanacoto Group's story

ALCOM: SANTA ROSA D. YANACOTO

Member of ALCOM: "SANTA ROSA OF YANACOTO” whose members are progressive and hardworking with their own businesses.


Cecilia began working since childhood with her mother who sold natural medicine in her homeland Huánuco. She married at the young age of 14 and began a grocery business. A few years later, with all she had learned, she decided to sell medicine, natural meiecine, and started applying her mother's knowledge of curing certain ailments such as respiratory tract diseases, muscle pain, and mild infections. At the same time she sold clothes and polos and it was then that she decided to move to Lima. This time she had to recommend herself since it was a new place. There was no competition for her business so she was able to implement more in merchandise with the loans she received from EDAPROSPO-PROSPERIDAD. With the sales she was then able to have her own stand in a shopping center where her sales are very profitable. The secret is that besides Cecilia being a specialist in knowing every plant's healing property, she serves her community by helping the elders and does not charge them for remedies she prepares. This job helped her grow since she attended talks and conferences she was invited to. She had the opportunity to travel to Ecuador and the people she met there where medical therapists who enhanced her understanding. In turn, she was able to share with the medical specialists the healing discoveries she maD. while treating her patients. Not only was she able to buy the land she owns and lives on, with this job she was also able to build it, acquire artifacts, and pay for her children's education. Many of her patients are professionals (lawyers, politicians, nurses, and doctors) and locals who are grateful for Cecilia being able to cure many of their diseases such as cancer, tumors, cysts, and myomas; but only when a surgical intervention is not necessary. If they do need surgery she tells her patients they should have it since she verifies it through x-rays and ultra sound scanning. She thanks God for having guided her to this path of helping people with much love through her knowledge. Her goal is to travel with medics in the United States so they can learn about and spread this form of healing.


The loan she requests will be used to buy more syrups, herbs, and other natural healing medications.
