Las Pioneras Group's story

Sra. Deysi is in a common-law relationship and has two school-age children. She is 32 years old and currently a member of the Communal Bank "Las Pioneras" (The Pioneers), which consists of eight members who engage in different retail activities.

Deysi works in a store located in her home. She started this business six years ago when her children were starting school. Deysi knew that she needed more money to cover the cost of her children's education and to pay for basic expenses, such as food and utilities. She used whatever capital she had to invest in the purchase of staples such as rice, milk, sodas, and other products and her business grew over time. Deysi says that she has worked very hard with the support of her husband. Thanks to her effort and dedication, her income has improved, her children are able to study, and she has gradually been able to buy things for her home so that her entire family can have a better quality of life.

Deysi is requesting a new loan in order to buy staples, such as rice and noodles. With the help of the loans from EDAPROSPO, she will be able to accomplish her goals through hard work and effort.
