Berkis is a hardworking woman with 8 children. Just 6 of them live together with her and her long term partner. The other two live with their own families. Berkis is located in the agricultural city of Hato Mayor.
She has a little stall in her house to sell vegetables. She will invest this loan to buy different vegetables like plantains, cassava and also salad and fruits. Around 7 years ago, Berkis started her business with her first Esperanza loan, where she started to receive loans with a group. Now she is taking loans by herself in bigger amounts. She is planning to save her profits to help her children attend school, and lately to support them with their university expenses.
