Mujeres Con 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 a variety of beverages for sale, as well as ice creams of different flavours.


Mujeres Con Esperanza Group's story

The group called "Mujeres con Esperanza" [Women with hope] is in its 6th cycle of the women's committee program, where they all work and help each other to get ahead. They are doing the poverty elimination survey.

Maria is one of them. She wants to invest in her business selling drinks and ice creams. Her work is modest but it allowed her to help her family and give them a decent quality of life with what they modestly need.

Maria is a hard-working person who is not afraid of challenges and looks for a way to continue with her work as she has been doing.

She asks for this loan to buy a variety of drinks for sale, as well as ice creams of different flavours so that she can continue with her work as she has been doing.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo but this is a group loan. The group photo was not possible in order to avoid the crowding of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
