Vida Group's story

Sira M. is an associate of Esperanza International living in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. She lives in a cement house with her husband and six children and has access to occasional running water and electricity. From her hom, she runs a small restaurant that sells juice and typical Dominican cuisine. Currently her eldest daughter runs the restaurant while she works in a nearby hotel in order to make ends meet. With the loan she will buy a toaster, a blender, and more stock supplies (sugar, rice, beans) to be able to produce more food and earn more money. She is hoping to expand her business enough for it to become her primary source of income, which will allow her to be her own boss and finish her roof. She hopes that this money will help her children get a better education. Sira also aspires to one day be a loan officer with Esperanza. She is very grateful for all of your support. Sira is part of a loan group, and this loan will be distributed amongst the members.

In this group: Sira, Adriana, Hilario, Ana, Marya, Adriana, Eladio, Eduvirgen, Victor, Milagro
