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

A loan helped to purchase groceries and supplies for preparing her product.

Esperancitas Group's story

Maria is 50 years old. She is married and has 5 children. She works preparing and selling food, a business that she has had for 15 years. A typical day for her is to get up really early to take care of her children and do the domestic chores, so that later she can work at preparing her food for sale.

With this, her first loan, she will invest in the purchase of groceries and supplies for preparing the food to later sell.

Maria knows the members of her group since they are all neighbors in their area. Her goal and aspiration in relation to this loan and her business is to have her business grow so that she can increase her income and be able to equip her business.

Maria's goals and aspirations in her life are that her children become professionals and that they do not lack for anything.
