Esperanza Group's story

This group is named Esperanza. It is made up of hardworking and struggling women who are looking for a way to improve themselves and give their loved ones the best so that they are not in need.

Rosa is one of the members of the group who works sewing clothes. She has a modest workshop in which she works every day from early in the morning.

She mentions that her work was affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic and she has been unable to work normally. Despite this, she seeks a way to improve herself and build her business again, which helps her to give her family the best.

She is a hardworking person who is looking for a way to be able to start her business again and with this to be able to continue offering her family everything she could not have and prevent them from experiencing any need.

She is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of fabrics, threads, elastic materials and other products to be able to increase her business and improve it.
