Edith spends her day working as a teacher, she has spent a long time doing this job which is going very well thanks to the hard work that she puts into her work. Edith hopes to be able to continue working so that she can continue to support her family. This loan is part of one of the credit facilities from the Asociación Arariwa which goes by the name of Credi Yapa. This line of credit is given to loan borrowers with a good credit history, and this group fits these characteristics. Edith is seeking the loan to buy educational materials. The people in the photo with their faces covered up do not belong to the communal bank, those who appear in the attached photos requested permission to arrive late to the meeting for work reasons. Edith is grateful for the loan given and pledges to meet the defined repayment deadlines. The other members work in restaurants, grocery store, making cakes, hospitality and teaching.
