Las Dulces Orquideas Group's story

Greetings from Peru! Sra. Janet is a member of “Las Dulces Orquideas” Communal Bank, which is made up of nine members who engage in various business activities.

Janet has been selling kebabs, tripe and doughnuts. She started her business when she was divorced because she had to work to support her two daughters. Thus, she began selling kebabs from the doorway of her house and over time she became better known and now she also sells doughnuts.

Janet has requested a loan to purchase meat, flour and other supplies to prepare her doughnuts and kebabs and thus be able to serve her customers.

Janet is separated and has two daughters. Thanks to her effort and dedication she has succeeded in improving her income. Her daughters attend private schools. Janet is very happy with this loan and thanks Edaprospo and Kiva.

In this group: Janet Teresa , Karina Lizzett , Alejandra , Marta Santos , Hermelinda , Luis , Nora Virginia , Hector Jean , Maura
