A loan of $2,475 helped a member to purchase a prefabricated house.


Las Tres Marias Group's story

Sra. Maria, age 33, is in a common-law marriage and has two children. She is currently a member of the Communal Bank “Las Tres Marias” (The Three Marys), a group that consists of six individuals who engage in different business activities. Maria sells food such as “ceviche” (marinated seafood) and shellfish from a cart on the weekends. Other times she works at home. Maria started this business because she wanted to provide a better quality of life for her family. Thanks to her effort and dedication, she has been able to earn more income so that her children can go to school. She was also able to buy a piece of land.


Maria is requesting a new loan so that she can buy a prefabricated house to be placed on her land in order to have a place to live with her family. She will reach her goals through hard work and effort and the loans from EDAPROSPO will be of help.

In this group: Maria Magdalena, Angelica, Zoila Alejandrina, Giovanna Maribel , Rosa Maria, Silvia
