Genesis Group's story

Luisa is one of the members of the “Genesis”. The members are micro-entrepreneurs who sell clothing, assorted merchandise, shoes, crafts and bread. Some members also have businesses such as a beauty salon or a grocery store. The businesses are located mainly in the city of El Seybo, a farming community in the northeast of the country. Luisa makes her home in a simple structure with her two children. She tells us that her most difficult challenge is to raise her children and educate them, even while she is working and taking income home. They are attending school while she is walking around in different communities to sell her products. She enjoys being at her home. She sells miscellaneous products like clothes, underwear and cosmetics. Luisa is very excited about receiving her 4th loan from Esperanza Internacional, having repaid her previous three loans satisfactorily and taking an important step toward her business’s growth. She will use this new loan to buy pants, T-shirts, skirts, blouses and shirts. She will use the profits to cover her family expenses and to reinvest in her business. She thanks all of you for your support. In this loan, we are adding two pictures to complete a picture with most of the 25 members since it was impossible to get a photo that captured everyone.
