Triunfadoras De Oquendo Group's story

Kelly, 31, is one of the members of Truinfadoras de Oquendo Group. She's married and has two children, ages 5 and 8. She lives with her mother and her sister.

Currently she has a grocery store in her house. Before starting this business she worked selling clothing on order, but it didn't go very well for her because a lot of customers delayed in paying. This was how she decided to start her grocery store two years ago, with very few products in the beginning but improving little by little. Now she has all types of food products, beverages, and telephone cards. Kelly works in the store 10-12 hours a day. Her mother helps her, often taking charge of the business.

With the loan from EDAPROSPO she'll be able to buy Christmas products such as panettone, chocolate, and milk.

In the future Kelly wants to open a clothing store in a central location. She wants to continue saving so she can achieve this goal. She also will continue with her store, which allows her to help with the family finances.

Kelly's grateful to the lenders around the world for allow her and her entire group to be able to continue making progress. In the photograph she's wearing a black and green sweatsuit jacket.
