Juntos Al Progreso Group's story

The 'Juntos al Progreso' (Together towards Progress) community bank has been working with Edaprospo for nine months. It has nine members who work in different businesses including selling soft drinks, selling fast food and running a grocery store.

L. is an entrepreneurial young woman who sells basic household products (Bodega Alexandra - Alexandra's Grocery Store). She is 27 years old and has a 4 year-old son. She started working in this business as she was let go from her previous job.

With her previous loan, L. was able to stock her store and also spend more time with her son. Her goal is to build a house so that she can provide her family with a better quality of life. She will use this loan to buy merchandise.
