Paraiso Perdido - Izcuchaca Group's story

Good Afternoon!

The “Paraíso Perdido- Izcuchaca” group is starting its fourth cycle with seven members who have been working with Edaprospo for 18 months now. One of the group members is Daría who works selling food from place to place in local markets and street fairs. She exclusively sells ‘chicharrones’ (fried pork that’s highly prized in Peru). Daría is 65-years-old and was widowed three years ago. Income from this business is her only income. The requested loan is to buy pork that will be used to make the dish she sells. Her dream is that in time she will be able to open her own restaurant and give good customer service. The entire “Paraíso Perdido- Izcuchaca” group is profoundly grateful for the help people in other countries provide them with. Daría is the lady on the left who speaks in the video.

In this group: Daria, Maria Estela*, Helen Miretzki, Guilliana Elisa, Marilyn Janeth, Wilinton Americo, Yesela
