Esperanza Romana's story

Esperanza is 40 years old and is married with seven children. She runs a clothing store out of her house. She travels to San Cristobal every 15 days to buy new products. Due to the long distance (two hours by truck) it is difficult for her to maintain a supply. She therefore takes orders from people in her community and once she has accumulated several of them she makes the trip to buy the ordered items. She will use the loan to increase her stock and thus not have to travel so frequently. She belongs to the Santa Lucia 4 group.
