Madres Emprendedoras Group's story

Ofelia Soledad F. Enriques is a 38-year-old woman who is a member of the Olivos agency. She has a live-in partner and 3 children, one of whom is still young.

Ofelia is a member of the MADRES EMPRENDEDORAS (Enterprising Mothers) Group, which is comprised of 12 members. She has been in the group for 3 years and is the group president.

She states that upon moving to another house, she formed another group. This name was chosen because these mothers really wanted to keep making progress. Ofelia currently sells clothing. She states that she started out selling fast food, but she decided to rest due to a problem with her vision. For this reason, she started selling shoes and clothing. With this business, she has managed to become more responsible and independent, and she has learned to administer her finances. She helps her husband with the household income, and the most important thing is that these earnings help her get treatment for her eye problem, which is very costly. In the future, she would like to set up her own beauty salon and help her children become professionals. She will invest this EDAPROSPO loan in obtaining merchandise for her business.
