A loan of $2,075 helped a member to purchase products for her grocery store.


Rumbo Al Exito Group's story

When Rosa started her family she thought of doing something to help her husband. She previously worked in different jobs but she wanted to do something from her own home to be able to dedicate herself to her daughter. When her husband received money from his work, they both thought of using it to invest in a business, so they decided to set up a grocery store. They started with a few items but they had a lot of desire to work and they have now had the business for almost three years. Although there are several grocery stores nearby, they have been able to attract many customers that always come to their store to do their shopping. Rosa sells basic items such as rice, sugar, pasta, drinks, etc. Her business has done very well and she now has more items to offer to her customers. What have been of great help are the loans from EDAPROSPO, which help her to continue purchasing more products to have variety.

Her earnings have helped her to obtain some comforts in her home. In the future, she wants to have a larger store and convert it into a mini-market. She is currently the secretary of the ‘Rumbo al éxito’ communal bank, which consists of eight members who are neighbors.
