San Martin - Izcuchaca Group's story

Hello, Good Morning! Greetings from Perú.

Today I’d like to present the “San Martín-Ixcuchaca” group to you, a group that’s been working with Edaprospo Group for a year. They joined together because they all worked in the same locality and all work as independent workers who dream with improving their income and thus also improve their way of life at home.

One of this group’s members is Maritza, 37, who helps her husband support the family with income she earns from sales in her restaurant. She lives with her husband and two daughters. The older one attends public school and the second one is school age. The older one helps her mother in the business in her free time and when she’s on school vacation. Maritza’s dream is to provide her two daughters with professions so that they can support themselves from income earned from their professions.

The loan Maritza is requesting is to buy groceries like rice, sugar, noodles and oil in quantity in order to have higher profits from her income. Maritza is very happy to know that foreigners help her and her group to carry out their dreams which is why she says: “Thank you for the support from Edaprospo and from Kiva lenders.”

Maritza is wearing a black and White sweater, Brown pants and is carrying a small, knit, black and white purse; she’s third from the right.
