Las Semillitas Group's story

Greeting from Peru! Sr. Raúl is a member of the Communal Bank “Las Semillitas” (The Seedlings), a group that consists of seven members who engage in various business activities.


Raúl has worked 10 years doing vehicle painting and body repairs with his friend who is also his business partner. This business emerged after Raúl lost his job. The situation worried him because he has a son to support. As a result, he and his friend established this business together with great enthusiasm.


Raúl is requesting a loan in order to buy supplies (paint and all the equipment he needs to do vehicle body repairs) so that he can provide better service to his customers. He is separated from his spouse and has one child. Thanks to his effort and dedication, Raúl has been able to improve his income. His son is studying at the university and now has a better quality of life. Raúl is very pleased with this loan and expresses his appreciation to EDAPROSPO and Kiva.
