Don Bosco Group's story

Jene’s a member of the “Don Bosco” communal bank, a group of ten members committed to the Programa-Prosperidad. Jene has worked for four years as an assistant in a dental office. Thanks to her work and her effort she’s been able to contribute to household expenses and help her mother. She tells us that she bought her a “salchipapera” [cart to prepare and sell salchipapas-fried potatoes with fried potatoes] that she uses to sell fast food (Broaster-style chicken wings, hamburgers, salchipapas).

One of Jene’s dreams is to set up a restaurant at home where she can offer a variety of traditional dishes because she is sure her profits will be better that way. She plans to use the requested loan to continue to help her mother with ingredients like potatoes, chicken, oil and place settings.

The “Don Bosco” communal bank is very grateful to the Programa-Prosperidad because it makes their progress possible. In the photo we can see Jene wearing a white sweater; she’s located in the rear.

In this group: Maura, Mirian Blanca, Susi Alejandrina, Yene Cristina, Zenon Zosimo, Shirley, Paulina, Maria Antonia, Freddy Emilio, Isabel
