María is a member of the “Yama D. Amor 1, 2, 3 y 4” (Flame of Love 1, 2, 3, & 4) group. Her family is maD. up of her husband and three children. Both (mother and father) have educated and raised their children. She tells us that her most difficult challenge is to reach her goal of having a good business that generates good income both for her and for her community be it through jobs or good prices.

María is very excited about getting her 12th loan in Esperanza Internacional. She’s had a business for about 7 years which joined the Esperanza program when it came to the community. María is planning on investing her new loan in the purchase of foodstuffs like: rice, beans, sugar, vegetables, oil and meats. She will use her profits to continue investing in her business to improve sales incorporating more products and also to save. She hopes in a not too distant future to have her dream of building her house come true; she also wants to have good health and a more economically stable life.
