Dora Elizabeth's story

The members of Granito de Esperanza Loan Group meet every two weeks in El Carmen Canton, where one of the main sources of income is growing plantains of the Barraganete variety.

This is where Dora lives. She's 41 years old and married, and they have three children, ages 15, 11, and 7, who attend school. Her husband is a driver and he carries cargo.

Dora started a beauty salon in her home 12 years ago to earn her own income and help her husband with the household expenses and their children's education. She provides a variety of services, including dyes, cuts, manicures, and others. She doesn't have a fixed schedule; she works every day if her customers need her services. She also sells beauty products at the same time she's carrying out her other tasks.

She's going to use this loan to buy dyes, permanents, nail polish, and other items.

Dora has been in the group for four years and she likes it because of the help and her earnings. Her sister invited her to join the group. Her dream is for her children to finish school and be professionals.
