A loan helped a member to buy flour, yeast, and other products.


La Esperanza Group's story

The group called The Hope is part of the elimination of poverty program. Each member has the goal to be able to grow not only economically but also as people. They want their loved ones to not lack anything.

Amongst the members is Lourdes. She has a bakery and mentions that she has a good clientele base because of the high quality of the breads that she makes. She has been improving and growing her business little by little. Lourdes is a person who makes sacrifices and looks for ways to continue working through difficult challenges. She wants to be able to give the better life conditions to her loved ones.

She is asking for a loan to buy four, yeast, and other products in order to continue working like she has been.
