Faro De Luz 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Josefa lives in Santo Domingo, in one of the poorest communities surrounding the main city of the Dominican Republic. Josefa and her group of 14 members are taking loans for their businesses. This group is named Faro de Luz 1, 2 & 3 (Lighthouse). Josefa requires a loan to buy pork and beef. She runs a small butcher shop where she sells traditional sausages, prepared with salty pork and beef. She sells them in her house and by walking in her neighborhood and many others in different communities. This is Josefa´s first loan with Esperanza International. She will take a step toward improving her business by investing this loan to increase her sales. She has had her business for over 40 years, after her mother showed her how to prepare sausages and sell them. Her most difficult challenges have been to study and to overcome the death of her husband. She says that her favorite thing is to work, and she wants to serve to the Lord all the time. Josefa and her group are thankful for your support!

In this group: Josefa, Marta, Jeanine, Solange, Carmela, Nercida, Dameus, Nicolas, Santa, Dossous*, Mariona, Lexine, Jesumene, Denis
