Solidarios Group's story

Edhit is 36 years old. She's married to Narciso, who's in retail, and they support each other in the same business. They have four children - the oldest is 10-year-old Nayeli, who's in the 5th year of primary school; 8-year-old Michelle is in the 3rd year of primary school; 6-year-old Estefania is in the first year of primary school; and the youngest one is 3 years old and in the first year of preschool. Edhit is in the retail business. Along with her husband she owns a business selling natural products such as anti-inflammatory tablets, vitamins, calcium, among other items. They have been in this business for a little over five years and they report that they need to stock up every 15 days. They intend to use the loan for more merchandise, since they need to get their four children ahead and have them finish their studies. She tells us that this loan will benefit her a lot, and as previously stated, what the children need from their parents is the greatest support possible. Meanwhile, Edhit wants to expand her business. Edhit is one of the member of the "Solidario" ("Supportive") communal bank, which is comprised of nine women and two men, all hardworking people willing to get their families ahead.
