Fuente De Desarrollo 1 & 2 Group's story

Santa is one of the members of the Fuente Group for Development 1 and 2. They are micro-business people who sell clothes, natural products, shoes, artisanal crafts, etc. They are in the city of Samana, a tourist town in development bordered by the Atlantic coast and rich in natural resources. She is associated with Esperanza and started with us because she needed to work to get ahead.

Santa is very excited to be receiving her fourth loan in Esperanza Internacional after having sucessfully paid off her previous loans and having taken steps to grow her business. She has had her business for around 2 years and started it with a little loan from another institution to sell products on the beach. Santa is planning on investing her new loan in purchasing coconuts and fruit. She will use her earnings to re-invest in the business while she saves to be able to buy a van and build her house. Her biggest dream is to see her son graduate and become an upstanding person.

In this group: Santa, Modesta, Yosari, Leocarina, Rosario, Felix, Edikson, Agueda, Justina, Wuendy
