Nuevas Emprendedoras 3 & 5 Group's story

Dignorah is one of 10 members in a group of business people called "Nuevas Emprendedoras 3 & 5" (new entrepreneurs). She is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza. She has had her business of selling empanadas for 3 years. These round dumplings are filled with vegetables, meat or cheese, are fried or baked, and eaten as a snack or dinner.

Dignorah is 21 years old and says that her biggest challenges are to finish school and become a professional. She also wants to have a family and a successful bakery. Cooking is one of her favorite activities and that's why she is turning her passion into a business.

Dignorah plans to use this loan to buy flour, meat, vegetables, cooking oil, baking soda, eggs, and other ingredients. She will save the profits and reinvest so she can fill any need.

All the members in this group are taking the loan to improve their businesses and their lives. They are located in the city of Los Alcarrizos, a very industrial city, in northern Santo Domingo. Dignorah thanks all of you for such amazing support!!!

In this group: Dignorah, Maximo, Sergia, Mariana, Leonor, Lucia, Juana, Natividad, Betania, Eliazar
