Unión Y Fuerza Group's story

Evangelina is 40 years old, has a common-law husband and two children who depend on her. She has been with Edaprospo for seven years and earns a living selling groceries such as sodas, sugar, detergents, etc. For five years she has been in this business which she started to increase her income to cover expenses. With much effort and hard work she was able to build her house. Currently, she uses her income to pay for water and electricity, while her husband covers food expenses. Her goal for the future is to open a lodge in the city of Cusco where she has land. Evangelina has used the loan to buy merchandise for her business, since this is the time when sales usually increase. She belongs to the communal bank "Unión y Fuerza", which is comprised of eight people; and she was recently appointed president.
