Estrella De Belen Group's story

Angélica is 50 years old and lives with her husband with whom she has 4 children; only the oldest is independent. She is the treasurer of the rural savings co-op "Estrella D. Belen", a group that has worked with EDAPROSPO-PROPERIDAD for almost 3 years.

Angélica sells vegetables and spices in the market, although she has not always done this. She started off as a traveling salesperson selling candy, but her children were growing up and she needed money for their education and school supplies, and the money her husband earned in public transportation was not enough. Because of this she preferred to look for a place in the market where she could have her small business.

Angélica hopes to complete her cosmetology studies and finish building her house, so that later she can open a beauty salon in her own home.
