Las Maravillas Group's story

The Communal Bank “Las Maravillas” consists of eleven enthusiastic and determined members who dedicate themselves to their small businesses. They have been working with EDAPROSPO – Prosperidad for eight months.

Marcia is a member of this Communal Bank and serves as its president. She is 26 years old, in a common law marriage, and has two children (ages 8 and 3 months). Marcia has been selling breakfast and juices at the Santa Anita Market for three years. Her uncle suggested that she start this business, and with great effort, she was able to pay for a refrigerator, a table, and repairs to her home. Her greatest wish is to open a clothing store.

This recent loan will be used to buy merchandise (sugar, quinoa, soybeans, flour, and other ingredients). All of the members are grateful for the support and promise to complete their respective payments.

In this group: Dante Johnny, Marcia Enma, Alejandra Maura, Edith Carmen, Gregoria, Maria Santos, Marisela Beatriz, Juana, Misael Adelaida, Maria Luisa, Jasmin Katiberi*
