Los Palmares 1, 2, & 3 Group's story
Monica is the coordinator of her group Los Palmares 1, 2 & 3 (The Palms). Her group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santo Domingo and is composed of 15 businesspeople. Monica and the 14 other group members are taking loans for their businesses. Monica requires a loan to buy fabric, thread and haberdashery items to make blankets, bedding sets and curtains. This is Monica's third loan with Esperanza International. She will take a step toward improving her business by investing this loan to increase her services and sales. Monica has run her business for almost ten years. She lives in a simple home with her three children. She is a hardworking single mother working to provide for her family. Her most difficult challenge has been raising her children. Monica enjoys taking care of her children. She says that her favorite thing is to sew. She will save her profits because she wants to fulfill her dream by buying a plot of land to build a house. Monica and her group are thankful for your support.
