La Buena Union 1 & 2 Group's story

Evangelista is one of the members of the “La Buena Unión 1-2” (The Good Union). The members are micro entrepreneurs who sell clothing, assorted merchandise, shoes, crafts and bread. Some members also have businesses such as a beauty salon or grocery store. The businesses are located mainly in the city of El Seybo, a farming community in the northeast of the country.

Evangelista makes her home in a simple structure with her husband and their 4 children. She tells us that her most difficult challenge is being sick most of the time due to a chronic illness. Her favorite thing to do is to be at her home. Evangelista has sold bread for about 5 years. She makes different kinds of bread by herself and sells it. She started the business with her first loan from Esperanza. Evangelista became a Esperanza Internacional client because she wanted to work and go forward with her business.

Evangelista is very excited about receiving her tenth loan from Esperanza Internacional, having repaid her previous two loans satisfactorily and taking an important step toward her business’s growth. She will use this new loan to buy fresh ingredients to make the bread, such as flour, butter, sugar, salt, cooking oil, and other goods. She will use the profits to save for her family’s future, because she wants to build her house in a concrete block structure. She thanks all of you for your support.
