Las Trabajadoras 10 De Octubre Group's story

Silvia belongs to the 'Las Trabajadoras 10 de Octubre' community bank. She has recently taken on the role of group president. This group has 7 members who gave the group its name because they all live in the same area and are workers (trabajadoras).

Silvia is 43 years old. She is a single mother and has one grown-up child who lives independently. Silvia has been working for 3 years delivering breakfasts to workers in her area and she has so far managed to buy a plot of land and items for her home. If she had working capital, she would invest it in setting up a restaurant. With the help of Edaprospo-Prosperidad we hope that she will achieve this.

In this group: Jessica Sofia, Elsa Valeriana, Eufemia Vilma, Javier Luis, Rosa Milagros, Vanessa Amelia, Ernestina
