A loan of $2,850 helped a member to buy ingredients such as peanuts and sugar.


Madres Unidas Group's story

This is the "Madres Unidas" communal bank. Marleni is 32, lives in a common-law relationship, and has two school-age children. Marleni is currently a member of the “Madres Unidas” group, made up of eight members who have a variety of small businesses. Marleni makes and sells sugar-coated and salted peanuts at wholesale, and at the same time sells food in the evenings. Marleni tells us that the motivation that keeps her going is her family, and that she worked very hard to get what she has today. Thanks to her effort and dedication she has bought herself a prefabricated house, and her children go to school. Marleni has applied for a new loan to buy ingredients such as peanuts, sugar, etc. Marleni will meet her goals through a lot of work and effort, and the Edaprospo loans will help her do this.

In this group: Marleni Elizabeth, Cesar Luis, Andrea, Maria Antonia, Gladiys, Glady Yolinda, Margarita Zoila, Gloria*
