Santa Rosa La Nueva Esperanza Group's story

This group is called Santa Rosa La Nueva Esperanza (Santa Rosa the New Hope). Its members decided to call it this because that is the name of their town, and in Fundación Realidad they found the hope of changing their lives. There are 11 members in the group, and they meet each week to make their payments.

The representative of this group is Flor Guadalupe. She is 38 years old, and has two daughters: Clara Luisa, 14, goes to high school, and Fatima, 10, goes to primary school. Flor Guadalupe sells chickens and Mexican dishes. She needs the loan to buy more chickens, since she runs out quickly. Her customers buy from her wholesale, and that's why she runs out quickly. Her customers recommend that she buy more chickens because sometimes she runs out quickly. One of her dreams is to have a larger store, since her customers like how she serves them. They are very happy with the service she offers. The members are:

Francisca - She needs the loan to sell Mexican dishes Fidelina - She needs the loan to sell Mexican dishes Angélica - She needs the loan to sell soft drinks Yesenia - She needs the loan to sell cold cuts Alejandra - She needs the loan to sell food María Luisa She needs the loan to buy Mexican dishes Soledad - She needs the loan to sell cheeses Isabel - She needs the loan to sell chickens Alba - She needs the loan to sell chickens Adriana- She needs the loan to sell Mexican dishes

They are thankful to Fundación Realidad for giving them the hope of starting their own businesses, and of having a better quality of life.
