Mi Fortaleza En Cristo Group's story

Ana is the coordinator of the “Mi Fortaleza en Cristo” (My Strength in Christ) group. Together with other micro entrepreneurs from the city of Santiago, they've decided to take out a loan to carry out various business activities. They are a group of 10 business people with different businesses. Some sell products like silver items, clothes, shoes; others are grocers. Ana is starting her business. She has seen the need to sell clothes for pets. This is her first loan and she’ll use it to buy clothes for dogs.

Ana is receiving her first loan from Esperanza Internacional to structure and start her somewhat unusual, but innovative, project. She has a lot of faith in that she will make her dreams come true. One of those dreams is to have a house of her own and to improve the economic situation they presently are in. She will use profits to reinvest and provide extra income for her family helping her husband with expenses. She has two children.

Thank you for your support.

In this group: Ana, Pedro, Maria, Rosanny, Belkis
