Dulce Esperanza Group's story

The committee "Dulce Esperanza" [Sweet Hope] was formed with the uniting of 16 neighbors from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All the committee's members carry out independent business activities, but they also have activities that strengthen their camaraderie.

Ms. Demetria is one of the committee's members. She devotes herself to sewing and decorating for events. She is a very hardworking woman, creative, active and with a great desire to get ahead. She has five children and her husband is an electrician. She is quite happy with her businesses and with the trainings the group receives. She comments that, along with her husband, she is trying to get ahead and help their family.

Ms. Demetria requests the loan for the purchase of cloth, zippers, buttons, and other supplies for stocking her workshop.
