La Proyección De San José Group's story

Mily is 24 years old and since she was very young, she has had to work to support her parents because they didn't have the resources to meet all of their expenses. She currently lives in the A.H. San José Mz. H Lt. 01 neighborhood in the district of Carabayllo. She is married and has two young children. She is a member of the group "L. Proyección D. San José”.

Her husband works as a taxi driver, but he doesn't earn enough money to meet all of their basic needs, so Mily decided to contribute to their income. She remembered that her mother had a food cart and she decided to use it to sell sausage and french fries from the door of her house. Thanks to the income she earned from her sales and both of their effort, they were able to pay the school fees for their children.

One of Mily's dreams is to have her own restaurant so she will earn more income and have a better quality of life. With this loan, she wants to buy a standard and merchandise to sell school supplies.
