The “Renaissance” Bank is a made of fifteen people - male and female entrepreneurs. There 3 groups that make up the bank receiving a loan. After successfully repaying their 1S.and 2nd loans they are looking forward to the continuing success and growth of their businesses with their 3rd loan. Though small, the group has a wide rA. of businesses: from cosmetics to artwork.

ClosS. G. is the president of the group. He is a husband and father of 7 children. This hardworking dad sells a variety of products including cosmetics, notebooks, and artwork. As a result of his hard work and with the help of the previous loans, his business has increased profits. He is grateful for the experience because prior to the loan it was difficult to afford paying for the children’s food and schooling. The experience of borrowing has made these expenses more manageable. He also contributes his strengthened relationship and faith in God to his interaction with Esperanza and the staff. He realizes that his story isn’t unique in that there are many people in the area who are experiencing more success and are able to feed and educate their children. On behalf of ClosS., Renaissance and Esperanza we thank you for your support.
