La Union Hace La Fuerza Group's story

Greetings from Peru. This is the “La Unión Hace La Fuerza” [Unity Makes Strength] group, with 8 members. They are in their 5th cycle, and the large majority of them are residents of the area. Julia is a widow and has 3 grown children. At 58 years old, Julia has been able to acheive some of her dreams, such as improving her home and helping her children get an education. Right now she sells gelatin and lollipops outside of a high school. Most of her customers come from the high school. To keep improving her home is her biggest wish. With the loan she asked for, she will buy a stove and some fruit to make her lollipops. The “La Unión Hace La Fuerza” group is grateful and committed to continuing to work well with Programa- Prosperidad. Julia is standing and is the fourth one from the left. She has on a black shirt on and blue pants.

In this group: Giannina Miluska, Julio Cesar, Julia Juana, Vilma Zaragoza, Ana Rosa, Liana Aulia, Luis Enrique*, Gaby Jackelin
