Dulce Esperanza Group's story

The “Dulce Esperanza” (Sweet Hope) group consists of 12 members who all live in the San Jerónimo neighborhood and know and trust each other very much. They are represented by Evelin. Most of the members are involved in the making and selling of bread, the sale of dairy products, masonry services, fast food sales, grocery sales in neighborhood stores, and meal preparation. They are located in various sites. For example, some of the food sales take place from moving food stands which allows them to change location if competition is too strong in one place. The members state that they will use the financing to buy merchandise, raw materials and tools which will help them earn better profits with which to support their families. The members who remain in the bank for this second lending cycle have shown responsibility and punctuality in their repayments. According to the report from the credit bureau they have good credit histories in other financial institutions such that fundación Agrocapital offers them new financial support so that the members will continue to work together to get ahead and thus proviD. their families with better quality of life.
