Mi Amigo Jesus Group's story

Alcom: Mi Amigo Jesus

Marina M. C. is 73, widowed and has 5 independent children and participates regularly in the Mi Amigo Jesus community bank. The other seven members are hardworking people as shown when they get together to make payments. They strive every day to improve their families' quality of life.

Such is the case with Marina who has a small shop in her home where she sells soda pop, cookies, bread and fruit. She also rents public bathrooms to the travelers in Corcona. Due to her age Marina has a hard time walking and does so with the help of a cane. Despite this obstacle she gives her best and keeps on working.

Her dream is to save up some money to finish building and roofing her home, since currently she has a roof made of aluminum sheeting. With her previous loan she bought merchandise and improved her sales which is why Marina trusts EDAPROSPO-PROSPERIDAD, and since they helped her improve her income. Today she is part of the community bank she needs a loan to buy candy, cookies, soda pop etc.
