A loan of $925 helped a member to purchase women's intimate clothing and accesories.


Progreso Y Conciliacion #2` Group's story

Maria is married and has five children. She lives in a small town in Consuelo, Barrio 15. Consuelo has many green fields, sugar plantations, narrow dirt roads, and tin houses that are constructed one next to another. Maria has lived there her whole life and operates a small women’s clothing shop from her home.

Maria has been in business for about eight years, selling clothes, intimate apparel, and custom jewelry. With this loan she will particularly buy women’s panties, bras, socks, bracelets, rings, earrings, and other accessories. She is also looking into buying a glass stand where she can display and protect her accessories.

This is Maria’s third loan with Esperanza. She states that business is not always good, it has its ups and downs, like everything else. She hopes that one day her business will reach a healthy size.

Please help Maria become a successful businesswoman in her community. Thank you.
