EDYE ROLANDO CIFUENTES ESCOBAR, MICROCREDIT PROGRAM
A flourishing enterprise
Edye Cifuentes, married and with three children, lives in Quetzaltenango and until 1992 had a humble business selling street clothes. Always very hardworking and consistent, he went all over the city offering his clothes. Nevertheless, his ambition led him to request that same year a credit of Q1,500.00 from FUNDAP, since his objective was to obtain a better future for his family, although in order to do that he had to change his profession. Thanks to his responsibility to the investment and, combined with punctual payment, and continuous labor evolution, was able to capitalize.
“Edye has grown fully
and has generated jobs“
Along with his wife, a professional in the field of Pedagogy, both made the decision to establish another business and opened a school, called “Canaan.” After several years of good operation, this school requires full time and intense dedication, so he preferred not to continue the clothing business. Their economic efforts continue to focus on covering school expenses, in such important improvements as equipping the computer room for students. After 24 years of relationship with FUNDAP and a total of 54 loans received, Edye has grown fully and has generated jobs, achieving his objectives.
