Señor Nazareno Group's story

Hedibia is the president of the “Señor Nazareno” Communal Bank, a group made up of seven hardworking and enthusiastic members. Hedibia is 51 years old and married. She has 5 children of whom 2 are still dependent since they are of school age.

Hedibia is a hardworking woman. With a desire to progress and contribute to the household expenses, she began her own business selling fruits, soft drinks, and snacks on an itinerant basis. Most of her customers are people that travel to the center of the country.

Thanks to her hard work, Hedibia has succeeded in improving her house. Her dream is to install a shop in her house where she can sell her products and not have to work itinerantly. She will invest the loan she receives from EDAPROSPO in her business, purchasing fruits (apples, peaches, grapes), soft drinks, and snacks (peanuts and beans), and in this way have what she needs for her customers.

The “Señor Nazareno” Communal Bank is very grateful and promises to continue working with Programa Prosperidad (Prosperity Program). Margarita wasn’t able to be present for the photo because of her work.
