Mujeres En Victoria 1 & 2 Group's story

'Mujeres en Victoria 1 & 2' is a group comprised of ten women. Each member comes from an extremely poor area in Santo Domingo. Each member sees this as a chance to change their future and provide their families with a better life. Immacula is one of these members. She is the mother of three children, two of whom are already grown. Only the youngeS. is still living with her and her husband. With these loans Immacula hopes to inveS. in her Comedor - a little restaurant - where she sells lunch to her neighbors and people working around the community. This is Immacula´s third loan with Esperanza International. She has taken a step toward improving her business by investing every loan to expand her business, which has been operating ten years already, in order to serve her clients. She started taking loans from Esperanza almoS. two years ago, after the program went to her community and a group of five women decided to start this group. Her moS. difficult challenges are to have her business improve and to have a good house and a vehicle for work and family. Thank you for your support!
