Solidaridad Group's story

This is the Solidaridad (Solidarity) group.

Mirian, 51, is one of the partners. She has an eight-year-old son. At the present time she is living with her sisters whom are very close and supportive of each other. Mirian works for herself. Five years ago, her sister encouraged her to start her own clothing business. Thanks to her job she can pay for the living expenses of her son, whom she takes care of alone. She works about 7 hours daily. Her best customers are her neighbours, friends and relatives. On the weekends she also sells food which she prepares in her house and sells.

The money from the loan that she is requesting will be used to purchase more clothing for her business. In the near future she wants to have her own store, now she cannot do it because of the lack of resources, but she believes that soon she will have it.

Mirian thanks EDAPROSPO for their support and all the people who have allowed her and her communal group the opportunity to obtain this loan.
