Cristo Me Ama 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator of her group, Cristo Me Ama 1, 2, 3 (Christ love me). As a single mother, she makes her home in a simple structure with her 3 children. To earn a living, she operates a clothing sales business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying pants, t-shirts, blouses, etc. She says that her most difficult challenge is saving enough money to get her own house. In the meantime, she plans to continue to enjoy attending the church.

Maria is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza. She has had her business for 2 and a half years, and it was started with a loan she took. She has been saving her profits because, through this business, she wants to make her dreams come true- to have her own house and to help her children.

Maria's group is located in the rural area surrounding L. Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy.

In this group: Maria, Julito*, Gracita, Susana, Maritza, Salvador, Rosa, Awilda, Lamis, Elimena, Ludgerio, Esthervina, Maria, Jose*, Zeta
