Sagrada Familia Group's story
Ms. Anita is divorced, has three children, and is currently a member of the "Sagrada Familia" ("Holy Family") communal bank, a group comprised of 16 members who work in various types of commerce. Anita has been working for five years in a bodega [small grocery store] installed in her house. She sells groceries like milk, sugar, and rice, as well as sweets, cookies, candies, etc. This work arose from her divorce, as she was left alone with her children and had to support them. Her motivation to keep moving was her children, so she worked very hard to get her family ahead. Thanks to her effort and dedication, she has achieved better economic results, which is how her children are able to attend school, how she can buy things, and above all how her family has a better quality of life. She has requested a new loan with the goal of continuing to grow and in order to buy merchandise (milk, sugar, rice, sweets). We know that Anita will meet her goals through a lot of work and effort, and that the loans through Edaprospo will help her.
