La Inmaculada Concepcion Group's story

Benjamina is divorced. She has four children and is 50 years old. Currently she is a member of La Inmaculada Concepción communal bank group, made up of nine members who work in various business activities.

Benjamina has been working for 19 years selling groceries in a stall in the market. This business came up because her husband died. She needed to support her four children. So she worked very hard to get her family ahead. She began selling sweets. Little by little she grew her capital and invested it in rice, milk, and vermicelli. Occasionally she also sells "marcianos" [ice pops in a plastic tube], ice cream, and ice pops in the summer.

Thanks to her effort and dedication she has gotten better economic income. Her children managed to study. Little by little she bought things for her home and above all her family has a better quality of life.

With the goal of continuing to grow, she has requested a new loan to buy supplies (rice, vermicelli, milk).

We know that Benjamina will achieve her goals with a lot of work and effort, and that the EDAPROSPO loans will help her.
