El Eden Group's story

A group with much desire to overcome and enthusiasm to achieve economic success, this is how the Alcancía Comunal El Edén communal bank is characterized. For more than 3 years now, the group has been maD. up of 9 members that dedicate themselves to various businesses. For example, 39-year-old Juan Miguel C., who is married and the father of two children who are still minors. Every day he takes care of the book and stationary supply store that is his business. He is also an electronics technician and has a small workshop in his home, which generates extra income and allows him to have more income. He started in this business because there was not any bookstore near the school in the area where he lived. With the effort of his work, he has been able to get his family ahead and proviD. an adequate education for his children. With the recent loan, he plans to invest it in school supplies, and in the future he plans to expand his bookstore in order to obtain greater income.
