El Progreso De La Amistad Group's story

Melva is married and has three children. She’s currently a member of the “El Progreso de la Amistad” (The Progress of Friendship) communal bank which has 13 members dedicated to various commercial activities.

Melva has worked for the last three years making and selling pastry, that is cakes and chocolate sweets made by herself. At the same time she has a textile business where she does embroidery. This work arose because her husband’s salary was insufficient to cover the cost of her children’s education. Melva tells us that it was in no way easy and she has to work very hard to be able to get ahead but thanks to her effort and dedication she’s attained better income that has allowed her to build her house, her children have an education and above all her family has better quality of life.

With the goal of continuing growing, she’s asking for a new loan to buy ingredients (sugar, flour, etc.) to make her sweets. Edaprospo believes that Melva will reach her goals with much work and effort and that Edaprospo loans will help her.
