Los Excelentes 1 & 2 Group's story

Francisca is the coordinator of her group Los Excelentes 1 & 2, which is composed of 10 micro-entrepreneurs located in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. Their community is a rural area outside of the city.

Francisca sells underwear. She and the other members are doing business in their community and the nearest ones by walking.

Francisca is a hardworking mother with four children. Her most important challenges are to work hard to provide for her family and to help her long-term partner with extra income.

She is receiving her fourth loan from Esperanza Internacional and she is committed to working harder to improve her business. Francisca would like to save her profits to reinvest in her business. She wants to be a wholesaler and sell to other sellers. The 10 members of the group are shown in the two pictures taken in their community.
