Los Siervos De Jesus Group's story

Alejandra is 47 years old, separated, and has two adult children. She has been a client of Edaprospo for seven years and works selling food in a private school. She also sells Esika, Avon and Unique brand cosmetics. She has been making these sales for 25 years. Alejandra started out with the idea of selling these beauty products in order to increase her income because she didn't have enough money to cover her expenses. As a result of her efforts and hard work, she is now able to cover her household expenses and is able to pay off any debts that she has. In the past, she was a housewife but she started making these sales because she had to meet her family's needs. She used the loan to purchase cakes, cookies, snacks and ornaments that she will sell inside the school. Alejandra is a member of the 'Los Siervos de Jesús' (Servants of Jesus) community bank which has five members. She has been the group's president for more than one year. She is the person sitting on the far left of the photo, wearing a white blouse.
