El Eden Group's story

Greetings from Peru! Our group is made up 10 enterprising people who have a lot of creativity when it comes to doing business. We are members of the group "El Eden." Rosa is 67 years old, single, and has three children. For the last eight years, she has been selling sodas, candy, milk, and sugar. Rosa says that she has managed to build up a loyal client base which has generated profits which she has used to pay household expenses. In the future, she would like to have her own premises to sell her products from to be able to make more money. She will invest the loan she has requested in setting up a small grocery store so that she can get ahead. Rosa and all of the members of her group are grateful to Kiva and Edaprospo for the loan and for putting their trust in them. She bids you farewell promising that she will fulfill all of the goals she has set for herself.

In this group: Vilma, Maritza, Candelaria, Juan, Luz, Marita, Juana, Elizabeth, Rosa , Maria
