Rumbo Al Exito Group's story

Consuelo is part of the “Rumbo al Exito” Group, composed of 8 members, all of whom live in the port of Callao. It has been very useful to her to be part of the group because she has learned how to save and advance her business. She has always worked with her sisters preparing diverse dishes to sell, like stuffed potatoes, tamales, etc. Her main customers are the workers of the area where she lives. Then on Sundays she prepares ceviche (a typical Peruvian plate) and her neighbors are her major consumers.

By working to sell her meals, she manages to help her husband meet family expenses. Her contribution is a relief for both of them because in this manner, they can try to provide the best for their children.

At present, Consuelo is searching for a place where she can relocate her meals business. This is something that she wants to achieve very soon. The present loan will be a great help and she will use it to buy new kitchen utensils. The ones she has now have deteriorated with time. The loan will help her to offer better service to her customers.
