Esperanza Group's story

Norma Guadalupe is 30 years old. She lives with her children, who are younger in age and who depend financial on her since she is a single mother.

Norma has a small business where she sells tortillas in the morning and makes and sells french bread in the afternoons; this is a job she learned out of financial necessity and which has played out very well for her, allowing her to generate income for her financial responsibilities. She has a high sales demand in her community and her business is very well-known.

But she wants to stock her business more, which is why she is requesting a loan to buy flour and corn. With this investment she hopes to always have her product ready and to reduce wait times.

She dreams of buying a bigger oven since her business is growing, and to be able to provide her children with an excellent future.

Norma, together with Luis, Mayra, and Jose form the Esperanza [Hope] solidarity group, which is made up of responsible and entrepreneurial people who have the same end goal of getting their families ahead.
