Hijas De Sion 1 & 2 Group's story

Maria is the group coordinator of her group, Hijas D. Sion 1 & 2. This group has 10 members. The group is based in Los Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial town.

Maria runs a small business selling empanadas (filled dough of meat, eggs or vegetables). She dedicates herself to selling this meal from her house and producing income for her family. She has three children and they are live together with her husband and her children's father.

Maria is really excited to develop her business, which she started four years ago with some of her savings. She is committed to do a business and help her husband with extras income. This is her first Esperanza loan. She wants to use her business profits to save.

Her dreams are to have her own house, and thanks to her business, her savings and the Lord, she will get it. Her favorite thing to do is to play sports, especially softball.

In this group: Maria, Aylet, Luz, Magdelin, Ynes, Almeilia, Gaudi, Ana, Jenni, Rosalia
