A loan of $175 helped to pay an outstanding debt.


Maria,'s story

Two years ago, María began receiving loans from EDAPROSPO. Her business was in the purchase and sales of beauty products from her home. However, because the earnings from this business were very low, it only was enough to reinvest a small amount back into the business. Six months ago, she left the business to have more time and be able to take care of her children and home. However, one day she would like to return to this same business if she is able to obtain good business capital.


Previously, she worked as a consultant for three years to provide an income to bring home. For now, her husband is the one who is in charge of maintaining the home, working as a university professor.
