A loan of $3,800 helped a member to buy clothing.


El Eden Group's story

Synonymous with perseverance is "Eden", an optimistic group of women and men who demonstrate a fighting spirit. The group has existed three years and has nine members who are quintessential businesspersons. The trust that exists between them is due not only to the time spent together in the group but also to the fact that they are all neighbors from the Agustino area. Although it would be gratifying to be able to comment on each member, words are lacking. Marita, for example, is a 47-year-old member who is separated and the mother of two children. She begins her workday at home. She has been caring for children for more than two years and now sells clothes so that she will be able to save for household expenses and to put her children through school. With the current loan, she will buy clothes and establish her business in her home. Eden's members know that, with care and dedication, they can succeed with each passing day.

In this group: Juana, Vilma Anita, Maritza, Candelaria Yrene, Juan Miguel, Marita, Elizabeth, Rosa Nerida, Luz Isolina
