Paz Y Bien Group's story

The Communal Bank “Paz y Bien” (Peace and Good) is in its third loan cycle and continues to work with EDAPROSPO. Everyone in the group has demonstrated responsibility with their payments.

Some time ago with the help of the loans from EDAPROSPO, Guadalupe was able to open a grocery store that is still in operation today. This business enables her to support her four children. However, she says this is still not enough.

Natali sells clothing on credit. Her earnings are used to pay for her household expenses. Her greatest wish is to acquire a vending post at a shopping center where she can easily sell more products.

Elizabeth has different businesses. She sells clothing by order in the afternoons and helps her mother-in-law in the mornings sell fish. These activities allow her to cover her household expenses.

The members are grateful for their loans.

In this group: Patricia, Guadalupe, Elizabeth, Brittsi Fiorella, Tonny Peter, Evelyn Doris*, Natali Consuelo, Florinda, Guisella Maribel
