Enterprising Women Group's story

Barbara is married and she has 3 children. She is a member of the communal bank named “Enterprising Women". It is a group of 8 members who have various business types. Barbara has been in business for 8 years, selling dress clothes at a rented shop she has with a partner. This business came to be because her husband earned minimum wage and they were not able to cover the basic expenses and so Barbara partnered with a friend and they established a small business. She said that it was not at all easy and she had to work hard, knocking on doors to sell her dress clothing. She finally managed to save some money and she set up a shop with her partner. Thanks to her effort and dedication she has managed to secure a better income. Her children go to a private school, she has 4 sewing machines for her business, but above all, her family has a better quality of life. Barbara says that she is now saving to purchase an industrial sewing machine. The loan that she was granted will be used to purchase merchandise (fabrics, thread, etc.). We know that Barbara will meet her goals with a great deal of work and effort and that the loans granted to her by Edaprospo (Kiva Field Partner) will help her.

In this group: Barbara Elizabeth, Cristina, Luzmila, Presentacion, Lily Victoria, Nora Dina, Violeta*, Valentina
