Las Emprendadoras De La Q Group's story

THE COMUNAL BANK "LAS EMPRENDEDORAS D. LA Q"

Gloria is 53 years old and lives in the Jose Carlos Mariategui settlement, in the district of San Juan D. Lurigancho. She is the mother of 4 children, all already adults. It has been 6 years since her husband died and Gloria became a widow, and from that moment, all the costs and responsibilities of the house became hers alone.

Gloria sells fish in a market near where she lives. She has done this for 23 years in order to maintain her family, educate her children, and finish building her house.

The group has worked with Edaprospo-Prosperidad since 2009, and this is the 4th loan they have taken out. This is Gloria's first experience as president.

Gloria's dream is to convert her stall into a wholesale and retail distributership and seller of fish of the highest quality and the greatest variety. To do that, the loan will be used to increase her working capital and, in this manner, to satisfy the greatest possible demand.
