El Futuro 1 & 4 Group's story

Gladis is coordinator of the “El Futuro 1 y 4” group. Her family is composed of two children and her husband. Her group is located in a rural zone in the outskirts of the touristy city of La Romana. Her community is a sugar cane growing area where the main activity is growing and cutting sugar cane. The members carry out a variety of activities like the sale of clothes, cosmetics and shoes; beauty salon, grocery store among others.

Gladis is very excited about receiving her fourth loan from Esperanza Internacional having paid her installments punctually and invested her loans and profits in her business. Gladis has managed to stabilize herself and set up her “colmado” which is a small grocery store where her neighbors come by to purchase basic need items for their families’ daily meals. She will use the loan to buy a sack of rice, beans, oil, canned goods and sugar, among others. She will reinvest in her store and help her husband with the generated benefits.

In this group: Gladis, Marcia, Francisca, Altagracia, Marie, Tomasina, Maria, Zobeida, Gela, Cecilia
