A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy cheese.

Luz De La Esperanza Group's story

Dademia is a member of the 'Luz de la Esperanza' (Light of Hope) community bank which has eight members, hard-working men and women who are committed to the 'Prosperidad' (Prosperity) program.

Dademia is 58 years old, married, and has four children who live independently. She tells us that she has been selling cheese for more than 20 years. She started out in this business as her husband raises livestock (cows). With the knowledge that he gained, he motivated Dademia to start her own business and she has made progress in the business. Thanks to her efforts and hard work, Dademia has managed to finish building her house and support her children's education. She currently invests her income in her business and also saves some money as her biggest wish is to buy a car which she can use to transport her cheese. In order to continue making progress, Dademia requested her latest loan to buy cheese. She has to travel to Yauyos province as this is where she buys her merchandise. Dademia and her 'Luz de la Esperanza' community bank are very grateful for the support they receive.
