Fe Y Progreso 1 & 2 Group's story

Kirce R. is a young entrepreneur who lives in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic. She is a member of the group Fe y Progreso (Faith and Progress), and her story is representative of the other borrowers in the group. Kirce and her husband Jose have three young children, ages 12, 11, and 3. In order to support her family and send her children through school, Kirce operates a small business selling parts and accessories for motorcycles. As soon as you enter San Pedro, it is easy to see why this is a good business to be in: motorcycles are far and away the most used form of transportation within the city. Drivers called “motoconchos” bring people all over the city, acting as an informal taxi service. Kirce’s products are in high demand, and with this loan she hopes to expand her inventory. This is Kirce’s fifth loan with Esperanza, and she hopes to continue taking more loans in the future. She hopes that her success in business will lead to a healthier life for her children. She wants them to become professionals in whatever they choose and have a different life than she has had. Thank you for your loan to Kirce and the Fe y Progreso group!
