A loan of $2,100 helped a member to buy provisions for her business.

Corazon De Jesus Group's story

Rosa is 40 years old. She lives with a partner and has five children, four of which are dependent. She has been working three years with Edaprospo and works selling salchipapas (fried hotdogs and potatoes served with condiments) and has been in the business for two years.

She began the business because she wanted to give her children an education and pay their school fees, and she also pays for food, water and electricity. She has also been selling cosmetics for a year. Through her efforts and work she has been able to buy some land where she is thinking of building a house and opening her own business.

She has been a member of the communal bank Corazón de Jesús for three years which is made up of eight people and was formed by an agreement of neighbors. She has been the president of the communal bank for eleven months and is thinking of using the latest loan to buy merchandise and some pigs to breed.
