A loan of $2,025 helped a member purchase sandals for summer.


Mujeres Rumbo Al Progreso Group's story

When her husband lost his job, Sra. Rogelia saw the need to help him. The best way was to begin saving so that she could start a business. Her mother gave her a kiosk where she could start selling clothes. Rogelia bought various garments and began offering them to people who passed by her establishment. Her capital gradually increased and now she is well-known. Many customers place orders with her, and since she offers payment options, she has been able to gain even more customers.

Rogelia now wants to venture into selling sandals for the summer season since there is great demand for these products. It is precisely for this purpose which she will use her loan from EDAPROSPO. In addition, she plans to move her business to her home since it is equipped to house a store. As a member of the group “Mujeres Rumbo al Progreso” (Women Toward Progress), Rogelia has accomplished many things and feels good about being able to continue working.
