La Esperanza Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy ice cream in a variety of flavors to sell.

La Esperanza Group's story

This is a relatively new group where everyone is looking for a way to improve herself and get ahead. They are also in the Elimination of Poverty program, where each woman fights for a common goal: to get their loved ones ahead.

Sandra is one of the group members. She works selling ice cream. This job, although modest, has allowed her to get her loved ones ahead. Her goal is to be able to keep improving, which is why she decided to join this group, since she saw that it was a good way to achieve her goal.

She is asking for this loan to buy a variety of ice cream flavors to sell; with this she can continue to make her sales as she has been doing.
