NOTE: Laura is a member of the "La Emresaria" group, along with four other entrepreneurs. They will be accountable to one another for paying back their loan of $750. This group lending method requires group members to help one another throughout the loan repayment process. Loans are paid back as a group. If one person is deficient on their loan, the group must make up the difference. Everyone in Laura's group has gone through Esperanza's training and proven to be responsible and determined to not only pay back their loan, but also to provide for their children.
