Luz Y Esperanza Group's story

Rosa is the coordinator of her group, Luz y Esperanza (Light and Hope) 1 & 2, and her group is located in the Samana PeninsuL., a lush, rugged area with a nascent tourism industry. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and their two children.

Rosa is excited to be taking her 11th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and growing her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying cosmetic and beauty products, and a hair dryer. Rosa is running a beauty salon. She has had this business for around 6 years. She will use the profits to invest in her business locale; she wants to have an own place, very organized and spacious.

Rosa said her most difficult challenge has been traveling to other countries. It is very difficult for her because it is very expensive to travel and get the visa. She is very interested in other cities and cultures. She enjoys working in her beauty salon and recommending to her clients hair cuts and to change styles. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Rosa, Luz, Noemi, Amauri, Gricelda, Carmen, Adian, Reyes, Ramon, Pascuala
