Luz Y Prosperidad Group's story

Light and Prosperity

Julia, 39, is President of the “Luz y Prosperidad” (Light & Prosperity) communal bank which has been working with Edaprospo-Prosperidad for over a year. It has been in existence for four years and has nine members that got to know each other because they are neighbors. They called it “Luz y Prosperidad” simply because the entire group liked the name.

Julia is a single mother living with her partner. She supports her three minor daughters. She started off selling snacks but has for a year now been working as a street vendor selling clothes. This is how she supports her three daughters together with her partner who also contributes to household expenses which are food, schooling, etc.

Julia would like to have working capital to rent a stand in her local market to sell from there and continue to get ahead like the hard working person she is.
