Unidos Por El Progreso 1 Group's story

Maria is one of the members of the group "Unidos por el Progreso" (United in Progress) 1. They are located in the city of Hato Mayor, in small rural community. Maria, like others in her group, is dedicated to doing business to improve her life. She is running a "Colmado" (a grocery store) where neighbors can buy their daily meal.

Maria started out just selling juice and other snacks in a small cafeteria, and now she has a large business with more inventory and customers. She is excited to receive her 5th loan through Esperanza. She started to do business after she took out her first Esperanza loan, almost 3 years ago. She will use her loan to improve her inventory by buying more goods. Her business profits are to be saved and in the near future she wants to build her house.

Maria is an extremely hard-working mother with two children. They all live together with her husband, who is also her children's father. Her most difficult challenge is to have her own house. She enjoys taking pictures.

You can really help Maria and the rest of this group "Unidos por el Progreso" to achieve their dreams by funding this loan!

In this group: Maria, Cristian, Elena, Catalina, Clara
