Beata's story

Beata is single and has three children. Living in deteriorated housing, she is requesting a loan, which she will use to improve her house by purchasing building materials to change her weakened zinc roof and broken wooden walls as well as a new door and window.

Beata is one of Esperanza Internacional's entrepreneurs. She came to Esperanza Internacional almost five years ago for a loan to expand her business. She joined the group Trabajando para el mañana (Working for the future) in one of the rural villages in Samana, where she has received six loans to invest in her business selling miscellaneous products,

Esperanza Internacional is running a program where most of their clients pay back their loans, fulfill the commitment to expand their businesses, and show fidelity in their groups. They can request loans to improve their house structure, while running their businesses loans and attending groups meetings.
