A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy merchandise for her clothing business.

Amigas Con Proyectos Especiales Group's story

Iris is 53 years old and married. She has four grown and independent children. She has been an Edaprospo client for one year. She has been selling clothes for eight years.

She started with the idea of building her house and improving her lifestyle. Through her effort and work she managed to give her two children an education.

Her income currently goes to covering the water, electricity, and cable expenses. Her husband covers the food expenses.

Her plan for the future is to open a new business that is a lot more spacious, and the business will be in her own house.

She used the loan to buy merchandise for her business. At this time her sales tend to increase because of the national holidays.

Iris belongs to the Amigas con Proyectos Especiales communal bank. The bank is comprised of six people. She has been the president ever since the group was formed.

In this group: Rosa, Aide, Sonia Yajairo, Iris, Felicita
