El Buen Samaritano Group's story

Baseliza is 68 years old; she is married with 4 children, none of whom are dependent on her. She has been an Edaprospo client for 6 years and she has been running a business selling beers and spirits for 10 years. She has also been selling cosmetics for 12 years, which she started doing with the aim of increasing her income and improving her family's standard of living. Owing to her hard work and commitment, she has succeeded in building her own home and educating her children. Her plan for the future is to open a shop or a stall in her own home and continue to improve their way of life. Currently, her income covers the bills for water and lights while her husband covers their food expenses. This loan will be used to buy beauty products for her business. Baseliza belongs to the "Good Samaritan" Communal Bank, a name which was chosen because of the kindness and faith of each of its members. The group is made up of 9 people and Baseliza has occupied the role of president for the last year.
