Mi Fortaleza En Cristo 2 Group's story

Romelinda is a member of the 'Mi Fortaleza en Cristo 2' (My Strength in Christ 2) group. She decided to join together with other small business owners from the city of Santiago so that they could take out loans for their businesses. The group has five members who each have different businesses. They sell products, silver jewelry and clothes, and run a food store. Romelinda has two grown-up children who still live with her and her husband. This is Romelinda's fourth loan. She is receiving her first loan with Esperanza Internacional with the intention of starting up a fairly unusual but, at the same time, innovative business project. She is putting a lot of faith in being able to achieve her dreams through this project. One of these dreams is to own her own home and another is to improve her current financial situation. She will re-invest her profits and use the extra income for her family, helping her husband with their expenses. She has two children. Thank you for your support.

In this group: Romelinda, Juan, Hilda, Esmayrelin, Jenny
