Mujeres Sin Fronteras Group's story

The “MUJERES SIN FRONTERAS” (Women Without Borders) communal bank is located in the third stage of San Juana Bautista, in the Comas district, within the Lima department. It’s made up of eight members who run small businesses and who’ve been working with EDAPROSPO-Prosperidad for the past eight months.

Sara Delfina is an enthusiastic entrepreneur. She is a 50 year old single mother whose husband passed away ten years ago. She has four children, two of whom live with her.

She’s been selling food (Creole style) from a stall in the market for six months. Her business is called “SARITA” and she started it after having worked as a cook in a clinic for many years. With the effort she puts into her work, and also much more effort, she’s managed to build her house and has recently installed a roof, but it still needs some final touches. She uses the income from her work to pay for food, services, education, etc.

Sara’s greatest desire is to have her own restaurant in her home and to hire people so that she can provide work for others.

The communal bank members will use the money from this loan to buy merchandise and other items to cover their customer demand.

In this group: Sara Delfina, Irene Leonor, Ketherine Ruth, Segundina Neli, Marlinda Haydee, Margarita Mercedes, Jessica Gisella, Berenice
