Miramar Femenino 3 Group's story

Ana is the coordinator of Grupo Miramar Femenina 3. The group is made up of five women who have businesses selling clothing, shoes and cosmetics, among other things. Some of them sell door-to-door while others run their businesses out of their homes. Ana is very excited to receive her thirteenth loan from Esperanza Internacional. She's been getting loans from us and investing them in her business. She will use the current loan to buy grocery products for her Colmado, which is a small grocery store where most of her neighbors go to buy their daily meals. The investment will be in rice, beans, cooking oil, canned products, sugar and other goods. Ana is the mother of four children; right now only two of them live together with her and their father. Ana has been married for more than 20 years. In the future, she would like to have land with cattle. She also wants to save enough money and overcome the economic crisis. She enjoys attending church. This group is in the town of Samana, a popular tourist destination on the Atlantic Ocean that's surrounded by a lush, mountainous landscape. The community has few economic resources and services, since it's a very rural area. The main businesses in town belong to the members of this group.

In this group: Ana, Luis, Ramona, Maria, Rosa
