Cristo Es Vida Group's story

Solio, 43, is single and has three children two of which still depend on him. He’s been an Edaprospo client for four years. He provides urban transportation service, a business he’s been in for 12 years. He started out because he wanted to give his children a good education and earn better income to cover needs.

He currently spends his income on food, electricity, water and telephone. His plan for the future is to continue growing and purchasing more cars for his business. He used the loan to buy some spare parts for his car because some of the parts broke.

Solio belongs to the “Cristo es Vida’ (Christ is Life) communal bank which has been in operation for four years. Solio recently became group president and there are 7 members.
