Las Flores Al Progreso Group's story

Paola is a member o the group "Las Flores al Progreso." This group is formed by 9 members, all friends. Paola is 32 years old. She lives with her husband and her 14-year-old son. Paola sells beauty products. She began this work through a friend who helped her at the beginning. Through all this time, she has had her own customers, who ask her for various perfume and makeup products. Thanks to the income that she receives from her work, she can help her husband with the upkeep of the house. Paola wants to attract more customers, and to do this, she would like to have a place where she can open her beauty product business. She will use the loan that she has applied for from EDAPROSPO to buy more beauty products and to be able to fill her pending orders. Paola feels happy about the loan for her communal group, and she is very grateful to the investors from around the world who support them. Paola appears in the photo in the black sports jacket with white stripes. Sra. Betty is seen on the right side wearing an orange sweater; she could not be present for the group photo.
