A loan of $1,800 helped a member to buy Christmas stuffed toys to sell.

Las Rosas De Maria Group's story


Ysabel has only been the President of the “LAS ROSAS D. MARIA” communal bank for three months. The bank has 7 members who know each other because they are neighbors (they live on the same street). They named their communal bank that way because they used to meet at María’s house, a former communal bank member, which had a rose garden, thus the name: “LAS ROSAS D. MARIA.”

Ysabel is 36 years old and a single mother of two dependent children. Because of this, Ysabel has been selling DVDs and snacks for the last three years. In this way, she can help her partner meet household expenses.

Ysabel will use the loan she’ll get from Edaprospo-Prosperidad to buy stuffed toys to sell during the Christmas season but her dream is to open a beauty salon or a restaurant and with Edaprospo-Prosperidad she will accomplish it.

In this group: Armandina, Renee Iris, Jose Luis, Ysabel Maria, Graciela, Ana Mariela, Maria Edubiges
