Nuevo Manantial 1 & 2 Group's story

Mariluz lives in Los Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial town north of Santo Domingo. Mariluz and her group of ten members are taking loans for their businesses. This group is named Nuevo Manantial 1 & 2 (New fountain).

Mariluz requires a loan to buy different styles of shoes, swimwear and underwear. This is her 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 two years. Before that she was unemployed and a friend helped her by sending her underwear to sell. When she started to sell them she lived on the income and began to sell in bigger quantities.

She has three children, all of whom live together with her and their father. She will use the profits as savings. Her most difficult challenges are to travel and to take her business sales into a big store.

She says that her favorite thing is to read and study. Mariluz and her group are thankful for your support!

In this group: Mariluz, Maribel, Carlos, Yilmarys, Yuberkys, Estanil, Andreina, Celia, Carmen, Albania
