El Futuro 1 & 4 Group's story

Gladis is the coordinator of her group El Futuro (The Future)1 & 2. Her group is located in the areas surrounding La Romana, an area economically dominated by the sugarcane harvest. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband. Gladis is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business. She runs a Colmado (a food store selling daily meals). The loan will allow her to buy rice, beans, canned food, sugar, vegetables, cooking oil, etc. She will use the profits to save and reinvest in her business. She said that her most difficult challenge has been to establish her business and improved it. Her dream is to have a supermarket and to like safe and tranquil at her home. She thanks you all for your support.
