Nueva Esperanza 2 Group's story

Esperanza is married and has two daughters, a 3 year old and a 3 month old. She strives to help her family financially and to prepare a better future for her daughters. She sells medicines and weaves caps, sweaters, socks and gloves from wool. She works with her hands using a crochet needle, as she has been doing since she was 10 years old.

Esperanza realized she needed to diversify her business to increase sales and therefore increase her income. She then gathered friends she has known for more than 15 years to form a group since she strives to help not only her family but also her village. Each of the ladies from the group is dedicated to a different activity such as selling fruit, raising animals, growing beans and tomatoes among others.

In this group: Esperanza , Rosa Maria , Francisca , Aracely , Virginia , Bacilia , Ana Maria , Rosa , Rosa , Santos
