A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy a refrigerator.

Esperanza Y Progreso De Huaycan Group's story

Marina is 50 years old, separated, and has two children. She is currently a member of the “Esperanza y Progreso de Huaycan" (Hope and Progress of Huaycan) communal bank. The group is comprised of six members who devote themselves to different commercial activities.

Marina sells food, that is to say that she has been selling “ceviche” (a fish dish) for two years. The business emerged as a result of her divorce. Marina needed to support her household. That is how she started selling ceviche on the week-ends.

Now she has loyal customers. Thanks to her effort and dedication she has managed to improve her income, her children have a better quality of life, and she has bought some electrical appliances.

Marina is requesting a loan to buy a refrigerator in order to continue growing in her business. Marina will achieve her goals with a lot of work and effort. The loans from Edaprospo will help her.

In this group: Marina Celerina, Martha Angelica, Jhovana, Richard Solis*, Yerson Javier, Michael Aleander
