Fiordaliza, from the city of Puerto Plata, is one of the members of the group Mujeres Capacitadas taking a housing loan. This is her 6th loan, which she will use to improve her house. She has had her business for over six years, having started it with her own capital, working by visiting neighbors and offering them manicures and pedicures. Her latest loan was invested in her business, which is a beauty salon.

Esperanza Internacional runs a program for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their business, and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their house at the same time as running their businesses and attending their group meetings.

Fiordaliza wants to continue building her house, and with this loan she will change some deteriorated wood walls for concrete blocks. Also she will make some changes in her business location that is part of her house. She is requesting this loan to buy cement, concrete blocks, zinc and other building materials.

Fiordaliza thanks God, Esperanza Internacional and all of you for this opportunity. In her name and that of her family, thanks to all of you for your support!
