Las Guerras De Fuego Group's story

Warm greeting to everyone from Peru! The group being presented is called “Las Guerreras de Fuego” (The Warriors of Fire), which consists of nine members who are starting their fourth loan cycle. Most of the members already know one another. They are responsible, enthusiastic, and most of all, punctual with their payments.

One of the members is Juana. She is married to Rafael, who works as a chauffeur. Living only on her husband’s income is not enough to meet the household needs, so Juana started a small business without much effort. She raises chickens from her home and then sells them in the town squares and at the fairs near her home. Juana is able to manage her business without neglecting her duties as a homemaker since she has two daughters who are in school. Little by little, her business has grown since she has also started selling to large prestigious restaurants in her town. Juana will use her loan to buy special balanced feed for her chickens, but she will also buy more birds. Her dream is to have enough cash to build her own chicken coop that is large enough to house a great number of birds.

Juana began working with EDAPROSPO more than two years ago. All of her loans have been invested in her prospering business. In the photo, Juana is the second person on the right wearing a red sweater and carrying a brown purse over her arm. The little girl in the photo is Sra. Ester’s granddaughter. Astrid is the member who is missing from the photograph.

Juana is grateful for the support that has been given to her and her group.

In this group: Juana, Jackeline, Astrid Yesenia*, Jenny Elizabeth, Blanca Luz, Evelin Charo, Lizbeth, Ester, David
