A loan of $3,600 helped a member to rent premises for her restaurant.

Unidas Triunfaremos Group's story

For a long time Elizabeth had a plot of land in the city center. Cars were parked on it and so she had some income from it. A few friends gave her the best idea of her life: they were evicted from a market place and, having no place to go, they proposed to Elizabeth to rent her plot of land to them and let them have their own market. This is how the Santa Rosa Market was established. Elizabeth receives a monthly rent which enables her to pay her bills and have a comfortable life. Currently she has a new project, namely roofing part of the second floor of the market and construct rooms for rent, and so have an additional income.

The loan that was granted by Edaprospo will be used to rent premises where she will launch a new business that she has always wanted to have: her own restaurant, one of her big dreams. She loves cooking and has already all the necessary kitchen utensils and indispensable furniture. She is very spirited and hopes to make her new project come true very soon. She is also happy to be a member of the Unidas Triunfaremos Group (United We Will Have Success), where she serves as a secretary.

Note: Elizabeth is the lady with the green sweater. There are two invited members pictured with the group.

In this group: Antonieta Nelly, Marina, Rosa Milena, Elena Josefina, Maria Ricardina, Hilda Luz, Maria Zohila, Milagros Rosario, Ruth Angelica, Carmen Elena
