Porvenir Femenino Group's story

Flavia belongs to the “Porvenir Femenino” (Future Women group). The group is comprised of ten members who work day-to-day at their business activities. The group is located in the Peninsula of Samana, a nascent tourist city where much of the citizenry live in rural areas surrounded by mountains and the Atlantic ocean. They mostly sell clothes, footwear, accessories, cosmetics, food, and other miscellaneous products.

Flavia’s family is made up of herself and her five children, 2 of whom still live with her in her home. They live in a wooden house that Flavia wants to upgrade into a concrete block structure. This is her most difficult challenge. But she says this is not impossible because with her work and God´s will, she will makes this dream come true and give her children all the support and anything they need.

Flavia has a business selling gasoline from the front of her house. She lives on the edge of one of the main roads. Many people drive through it and stop at her gasoline stand. She has been engaged in this business for 8 years. She tells us that she started this business thanks to some savings she had, then she was able to apply for loans from Esperanza and was able to invest further. Flavia has accessed and repaid 11 loans with Esperanza Internacional. She will use this new loan to buy gasoline and motor oil.

Flavia and her group thank you all for your support!!!
