Sonata De Invierno Group's story

Evarista is the treasurer of the Sonata D. Invierno (Winter Sonata) Communal Bank in EDAPROSPO-PROSPERIDAD. She is an enterprising woman who has an independent business. She makes woven items with wool and thread. She makes hats, ponchos, and outfits for babies and children. Her work is exported to foreign countries by a business that contracts her services. She has been doing this work for five years.

Evarista started this craft because a friend recommended it and motivated her to start this small business. She also makes macrame purses, which are very well-known by people and institutions for her distinguished work.

Thanks to her effort she has managed to give her children a better education and the necessary comforts. Currently she and her husband tackle their expenses together in order to pay their debt.

She is making arrangements in her house to be able to have an income from renters. This is to improve her finances. She is happy with the loan because this is the way she will be able to make her plans a reality.
