Mujeres Hacia El Progreso 2 & 3 Group's story

Margarita is one of the members of the Grupo Mujeres Hacia el Progreso 2 and 3, made up of 10 micro business owners. They all work selling clothes, natural products, shoes, food, etc.

Margarita is very excited to be receiving her sixth loan from Esperanza Internacional, after having paid off her previous loan satisfactorily and taken a step towards business growth. She has had her business selling decorative candles for around 6 years. She started the business with her own resources.

Margarita is planning to invest her new loan towards purchasing various products such as decorative candles, clothing, and accessories. She is going to use her earnings to continuing saving. With previous loans, she started building her house and now she is looking to finish it. Her dream is to be able to have her own well established business.

Margarita's family is made up of herself, her husband and her 3 children, 2 of whom live with her. She tells us that her most difficult challenge is caring for her children's health and being able to satisfy this need when the moment arises. She loves to watch television and to help out at the church.

In this group: Margarita, Carmen, Antonia, Hector, Juana, Joselin, Maria, Margarita, Ceferina, Ana
