Mujeres Con Suenos Y Metas Group 1, 2 & 3's story

Amada is the group coordinator and president of Banco D. Esperanza (Bank of Hope) Mujeres Con Sueños y Metas (Women with Dream and Goals) which is starting its first loan cycle with Esperanza. She resides in the Northern slums of Santo Domingo, an area where both electricity and water services (none of which is potable) are unreliable. In addition she shares her small house with seven other individuals including her husband and three children.

With this loan she hopes to open her own butcher shop to serve her community. She intends to put the profits she gains from the butcher shop towards imporving her home, seeing her children educated to become professionals and finally towards her own education. Amadas long term dream is to study family psychology and she is hoping that with the new income from her butcher shop she will be able to see her dreams fulfilled. She thanks you all for your support.
