Mujeres En Accion 2 & 3 Group's story

Colosa is the group coordinator of the Banco De Esperanza (Bank of Hope) Mujeres en Accion (Women in Action). She lives in the slums of Santo Domingo where both electricity and water (none of which is potable) services are unreliable. She lives in a small home with her husband and four children and sustains herself with her business selling "Ebel" brand cosmetics to salons in her neighborhood.

Colosa hopes to use this new loan to continue increasing the size of her business with the goal one day of opening a "super salon." To help make this a reality she is also continuing to study technical studies at her local university. In addition to her own studies, Colasa insists that her children continue to study and she intends to use her business earnings to see her children through to university. A final dream is to one day have the ability to travel all over the world! She thanks all of you for your support.
