La Esperanza Group's story

The group called La Esperanza is part of a program to eliminate poverty where all the women fight for a better quality of life for their loved ones. The women are the heads of their households and despite the many daily difficulties, look for ways to get ahead.

Eva is one of the woman, who in addition to being a member of the group, also serves as the group's president. She is a person who sacrifices while looking for ways to help her loved ones so that they don't have to go without necessities.

Eva is dedicated to selling fruits and says that she sells them on the street. She wants to continue giving the best to her family through her work. She is requesting this loan so she can purchase fresh vegetables to sell so that she meets her customers' needs.
