Prode Group's story

María is part of the group “Prode". María is a single, 41-year-old mother of 2 children. She currently lives with her youngest son, whom she supports financially. María started her business 15 years ago, thanks to her brother’s help. She has a kiosk in the local market where she works every morning, attending to her clientele who come to her looking for fresh meat. In addition, in the afternoons she runs another business from her house: a library bazar that she inaugurated one year ago. There she sells all sorts of school supplies and gifts. The loan she has requested from EDAPROSPO will be of much use to her because she wants to buy toys for the Christmas season. Her biggest wish in her life is to expand her business and continue investing in merchandise so she can serve more clients. María is thankful for the support she has received from the KIVA investors because they make her dream a reality. *María is wearing a red and grey striped sweater.
