Desarrollo Para El Progreso 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Mauricia is the coordinator of her group "Desarrollo Para el Progreso" 1 & 2 (Development for progress). She is excited to be taking her 6th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She has had her business for around 3 years, starting when she took her first loan with Esperanza Internacional. This group is taking loans to improve their businesses and their lives. They are located in the urban slums surrounding Samana.

Mauricia has 3 children. They live tranquilly in one of the rural villages around the city of Samana. The children are studying, and one of the biggest challenges for Mauricia is to help her children to develop and be prepared for their future. She said her favorite activities are attending church and serving to the Lord.

Mauricia makes natural juices. She will use this loan to buy pineapples, oranges, lemons, cherries, passion fruit, sugar and vanilla. She sells the juice in her house and by the gallon. She thanks all of you for such amazing support!!!

In this group: Mauricia, Marylin, Jiorol, Angel, Gregoria, Esmeralda, Liona, Epifania, Jorge, Francisco
