Guadalupe Del Carmen
Guadalupe has received loans from EDAPROSO for the past three year. She got a loan from her bank so that she could maintain her business, a store for groceries, soft drinks & beer. She used to get loans from her bank until she found out that the loan terms with EDAPROSO were much better.

Before having her own business, Guadalupe used to lease a stand at a market. She worked there for four years and her husband is still in charge of the business. She puts part of her earnings aside in a bank account, and she uses the rest to cover the costs of the education of her youngest children, a son who is three years old, and a daughter who is four years old.

At her forty years of age, Guadalupe works hard to make money to build a stronger and more secure future for her children, and also to make her business grow She would even like to have a photocopier to provide yet another service at her store.

Guadalupe recibe préstamos de EDAPROSPO desde hace 3 años. Antes para mantener su negocio, una tienda de abarrotes, gaseosas y cervezas, sacaba préstamos de su banco, pero le parecieron mejores las condiciones de los préstamos de EDAPROSPO.

Antes de tener su propia tienda Guadalupe alquilaba un stand en el mercado. Trabajó allí durante cuatro años, y su esposo todavía se ocupa de este negocio.
Sus ganancias en parte las ahorra para el futuro en un banco, y lo demás lo usa para cubrir los gastos de la educación de sus hijos menores, un chico de trece años y una niña de cuatro.

A sus cuarenta años Guadalupe ahorra rigurosamente para construir un futuro más seguro por sus hijas, y con tiempo ampliar su bodega, hasta tener una fotocopiadora para proveer un servicio más en su tienda.
