Paz Y Progreso Group's story

Greetings from Peru! Fausta is a member of “Paz y Progreso”(Peace and Progress), a Communal Bank composed of 13 people engaging in different retail activities.

Fausta runs her own restaurant selling breakfasts, lunches and fizzy drinks. Fausta has started her activity by renting out a restaurant; in time she has succeeded in buying the same restaurant and now it belongs to her, and she can count on recurring customers.

Fausta has requested a loan to expand her restaurant and to buy tables. She hopes that her restaurant will keep on growing and she dreams of opening another one.

Fausta is separated and she has 2 children. Thanks to her efforts and dedication, Fausta has succeeded in paying for her children’s university education and in offering them a better standard of living. Fausta is very happy about the loan and she is grateful to Edaproso and Kiva.
