Mujeres De Amor Group's story

Amancia G. acts as the group coordinator for ten women from Los Nunez, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Puerta Plata. She, like many of the women in her group, is unhappy with the poverty which her family lives in. A few years ago Amancia’s husband died leaving her struggling to support herself and her three kids. Although she has recently remarried, she remembers the hardships she experienced as a single mother and wishes to secure a future for her family.

After Amancia’s first husband passed away she provided for her children by selling clothing in Puerto Plata. Amancia says that she used to buy clothes at a discount from a warehouse in Santiago and then sell individual items of clothing in her neighborhood. Now, she hopes to use Esperanza to help her to start selling clothes again. Amancia believes that with the help of Esperanza she will be able to make her business a success. She says that Esperanza’s loan will allow her to obtain an additional discount from the warehouse because she will be able to buy in bulk.

Amancia’s hope is to spend the income from her clothing sales to provide her children with a good education. She says that she wants to help her children to learn English and dreams that she will be able to send them all to college. Amancia is particularly interested in helping her youngest son Rafael to pursue an artistic career. Although he is only ten, Rafael has demonstrated musical talent.
