Trabajando Para El Futuro Group's story

Ela is 50-years-old and lives in Zone G of Huaycan. She's separated and has 7 children, one of whom still lives with her. She's the president of the group "Trabajando para el Futuro" ("Working for the Future"), which consists of 7 neighbors and friends united by their desire to improve their lives. The group has been working with EDAPROSPO for a year and they hope to reach their goals thanks to its support.

Ela has sold chicken, beer, sodas, and other drinks for 20 years and she continues to do so in order to help her daughter Fabiola in her studies at a private school. She hopes to open her own poultry store with the money she's saving that her husband sends from the jungle. She hopes that her job and the working capital from EDAPROSPO will help her achieve her goals, even though she'll probably still need a little more assistance.

In this group: Norma, Ela Elina, Mirian Mary Luz, Amanda, Yeni Madelayde*, Margarita, Herminia
