Santa Rosa De Lima Group's story

The “Santa Rosa de Lima” (St. Rose of Lima) communal bank is a new group composed of seven enthusiastic members with the wish to start working with the Prosperidad Program.

Jacqueline was elected Treasurer by the group members. She has a spouse and is 38 years old; she has two minor, school age children. Jacqueline, like most of the residents of the town of Huariquiña, is a farmer growing alfalfa that she later sells in her community’s markets. She started this activity following in her parents’ footsteps that were also in this occupation. With her efforts, Jacqueline has been able to contribute towards household expenses and to improve herself. Because of this, she relates that six months ago she opened a small grocery store where she stocks basic need items. She’s going to use this most recent loan to buy rice, milk, sugar and pasta, among others.

Jacqueline’s wish is to finish building her house so that she can offer room and board thus having an additional source of income. The Santa Rosa de Lima communal bank is very grateful because you make their progress possible.

In this group: Esperanza Consuelo, Rita Celinda, Salbino Carnacion, Cipriana Nelly, Jaqueline Enma, Angela Marielena, Berenice Nathaly
