Las Palmeras Group's story

Ana is a 41-year-old widow who has four children. She is currently a member of a communal bank called “Las Palmeras” (The Palm Trees). This group is made up of 10 members who work in a variety of business types. Ana has worked selling clothing from her home for ten years and also sometimes works as an artisan making clay pots which she sells in the market. This business came about as a way to make more income as after her husband’s death she had to work harder to get ahead with her children. Now she had loyal customers and, thanks to her effort and dedication, has built her house and has educated children. Ana is requesting a new loan to buy clothing merchandise (polo shirts, pants, and blouses). Ana will accomplish her goals with much work and effort and the loans from edaprospo have helped her.

In this group: Ana Maria, Herminia Gladys, Celia Florencia, Rosa Trinidad, Gladys Carmela, Marcia Luz, Eomelia, Olinda, Angelica Maritza, Luz
