Fe Y Accion 3 & 4 Group's story

Carmencita is a member of the Faith and Action 3 - 4 Group, all microentrepreneurs selling clothing, shoes, handicrafts, and miscellaneous products. Her plazas are located in the city of Hato Mayor, an agriculture-based city in the northeast of the country. This member of Esperanza started with us because she wanted to invest in her business. She is the single mother of 2 sons, both still living with her. It is for them that she works so hard at her business. She tells us that her most difficult challenge is the construction of her house, which is also her most cherished dream. She enjoys caring for her children and being with them. Carmencita was very touched to receive her loan from Esperanza Internacional, after having satisfactorily paid off her former loan and having taken a break to grow her business. She has had this business for about 3 years, started with the first loan from Esperanza. She will invest her new loan in clothing such as skirts, pants, shirts, etc. She will use her earnings to continue the construction of her house, since her dream is to be able to live comfortable without paying rent.

In this group: Carmencita, Maurelina, Carmen, Elba, Martha, Andrea*, Asencion, Yeime, Ana, Petronila
