Hilcia is the group coordinator of Las Colmenas. She is a single mother of two who lives in the Samana province of the Dominican Republic. She lives in a rented house with her two children. Hilcia said her most difficult challenge has been to raise and educate her children. She enjoys operating her business and being at home with her children. This is Hilcia's fifth loan with Esperanza. She started her business with the first loan she received from Esperanza International, around two and a half years ago. She plans to use this loan to purchase clothes which she sells out of her home to others in her community. She will purchase underwear, pants, t-shirts, blouses, skirts and shirts. Hilcia wants to use the profits from her business to reinvest in it and to save because her future plan is to improve their living conditions, by buying or building her own house. She has maD. good investments and has been saving. She hopes to be able to save enough money to continue improving her family life and to make one of her dreams come true, the one to have her own house. She thanks you for your support!
