El Esfuerzo Es Grande Group's story

Sra. Lila is in a common law marriage and has five children. This is her first time to work with EDAPROSPO. Lila is a member of the group “El Esfuerzo es Grande” (The Effort is Great), which consists of eight friends who chose this name because starting a business requires a great deal of effort.


Lila has been selling lunches and frozen fruit treats for three years. Thanks to her effort and dedication, she has been able to provide her children with an education, build her house, and give her family a better quality of life. In order to continue growing, Lila is requesting a loan to buy a food cart for selling sandwiches and “salchipapas” (sausages and fried potatoes). She is confident of accomplishing her goals through much work and effort, and with the help of the loans from EDAPROSPO.

In this group: Lila Brina, Sabina Eugenia, Doris Marlene, Maria, Teresa Milagros, Lucia Francisca, Noymi Eufracia, Elia Rolinda
