Por Siempre Amigas Group's story

Flor has had a grocery store for years . Her revenue is just enough to maintain her business and doesn't allow her to finance her son's education since he graduated from high school. She comments that with the recieved loan, she will open a small bookstore with her mother's help. She hopes to make greater profits with the bookstore.
For the Christmas holidays Mercedes will take the opportunity to sell Christmas pastries, gifts, wines, and toys to all of her neighbors. With this she hopes to save up enough money so that next year she can rent a stand in the market since buisness has not been going well these past months.
Secretary Graciela sells beauty prodcuts by catalog or orders. She does not make much profit with this buisness. At times she only has enough money to eat once a day since she has to raise her 6 children. In spite of all this she is optimistic and mentions that her children are the reason and the motivation that drive her everyday.
The members are happy with the loans since EDAPROSPO-PROSPERIDAD has helped them much by allowing them to buy wholesale and make greater profits.
