La Esperanza Group's story

The "La Esperanza" (Hope) group was originally founded in the city of Guarambaré but was then transferred to the city of San Lorenzo. It has 16 members, all women, who are humble but hard working and industrious. Teresa makes sweet treats. Every day she makes a good quantity of sweet treats so that she has plenty available for her customers who are very loyal as they constantly visit her business to buy from her. Teresa takes very good care of her family's well-being. She would like them to prosper and escape the poverty in which they currently find themselves living. For this reason, she makes a lot of sacrifices and tries to sell as many sweet and savory treats as she can so that she can make really good income. Teresa is requesting a loan so that she can buy the supplies she needs such as, for example, flour, salt, milk and flavorings. The women in this group need this loan and they have every faith that Kiva lenders will help them.

In this group: Emilia, Fidelina, Rumilda, Elsa, Teresa, Mirian, Teofila, Ignacia, Ana, Elva, Laura, Nilsa, Rosa, Florentina, Lourdes, Constancia
