A loan of $3,075 helped a member to buy toys for the upcoming Christmas season.

El Eden Group's story

This group has a lot in common, including enthusiasm for moving ahead with their own businesses. The communal bank is called "El Edén", and is characterized by success. It was started by 8 members, two years ago. The members work in various businesses.

For example, Señora Juana S. is a member of this communal bank. Señora Juana is 38 years old, and is the mother of two children who are still financially dependent. She saw a way of progressing financially through selling food in the mornings, and also is helped by selling vegetables and toys. She has been working in this field with great attention for more than twelve years, and it has given her and her family much satisfaction.

With her recent loan, she will invest in purchasing toys for the upcoming Christmas season.

Like Señora Juana, the rest of the members each have their own story, but they all share the same level of care and accomplishment that they undertake each day for the well-being of their families.

In this group: Juana, Vilma Anita, Maritza, Candelaria Yrene, Juan Miguel, Marita, Elizabeth, Rosa Nerida
