Luz Y Progreso Group's story

Mirlanda is one of many enterprising women who sells goods, like rice, beans, sugar, oil, flour, canned products, vegetables and other products. She is a young mother of 3, and they live together with her long term partner. Mirlanda's most difficult challenge is to work hard to own her own home. While she works to reach her dream, she will continue enjoying to work and attending to her family. She is part of the group called Luz y Progreso, which consists of 10 micro-entrepreneurs from the city of Samana, located in the northeast coast.

She is receiving her 6th loan from Esperanza International. Thanks to her prompt repayments, she has been able to strengthen her business and make good investments. Her plans for this new loan are to invest in the purchase of food & musical equipment. The earnings will be reinvested in more goods and savings. Mirlanda is grateful for the support.
