Rayo De Luz 2 Group's story
Ana is the coordinator of her group Rayo de Luz (Ray of Light) 2. This group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. The group members are dedicated to selling cloth, food, shoes and many other miscellaneous products. Ana has had her business for approximately 5 years, starting with some savings she had. She plans to use this loan to invest in her cafeteria, where she sells natural juices, soda and some snacks. With this loan, she will invest in her business by increasing her inventory. She lives in a simple structure with her four children and her husband. She says her most difficult challenge has been to improve her business and introduce other products and services. One of her favorite things to do is work. Carmen is excited about her 4th loan with Esperanza. She will use the profits to improve her business and to buy some enamelware to introduce sandwiches and others products. Ana thanks all of you for your support.
