Clara is one of the members of the Por Fe Vivimos 1, 2 & 3 (By Faith We Live) Group, located in the city of San Pedro de Macoris, where the primary economic activities are commerce, industrial cement plants, and household and cosmetic products. This group, comprised of 15 members, are dedicated to selling different products all over their rural community and visiting some others nearby. Clara makes bags of food, with many different meals, and then she sells them for biweekly payments according to the days of most companies' payroll days. People make credit purchases and then pay her in one or two payments during a month. With this loan, she is planning to buy ingredients for different meals to prepare the food packages. This is Clara's twelfth loan. She has been taking out loans for about eight years and has successfully repaid all her previous loans. She started her business after she took out her first Esperanza loan. With her business and the loans, she has increased her income and capital to improve her business and her life. She is a divorced mother with two children. She cares for and works for their needs. Clara's dream is to continue improving her business. She is planning to reinvest her profits in the business and save. She thanks all of you for your support!!
