She is a member of "Amigas Unidas Group" (United Friends), which has been working for 2 years with the microfinance institution Edaprospo. The group has 9 members; they are neighbors and friends. Esperanza has worked for 20 years as a seamstress and was able to support her children when they were very young. Recently she managed to build the roof of her house and this makes her happy. However, she has now suffered from diabetes for 4 years, but it doesn't deter her and she knows that she can achieve her goals thanks to her effort and the support of Edaprospo.
