Las Semillitas Group's story

The members of this group are all neighbors. They named their group "The Little Seeds" because they have big plans to grow. They have been working with Edaprospo since 2008. Juan is the treasurer and works in construction. The president of the group is Ana and is wearing the green shirt.

Ana is 42 years old and married. This is her fourth loan with Edaprospo. Her two daughters, ages 7 and 13, attend school every day. For the past nine years Ana has been running a grocery store that used to belong to her father-in-law. The store is called "Pancho" and they sell milk, rice, sugar and many of the other basic necessities that her neighbors need. Ana tries to offer her customers a wide variety of products and this loan will make it possible for her to increase her stock of merchandise.

In this group: Ana Maria, Aydee Zurayda, Raul Eduardo, Juan Antonio, Maruja*, Carmen, Jorge Luis, Moises Octavio, Julio Genaro
