Mujeres En Desarrollo 1 & 7 Group's story

Marta is one of the members of her group "Mujeres en Desarrollo 1 & 7" (Women in Development). This group is located in the rural areas surrounding San Pedro, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her two children and her long term partner.

Marta is excited to be taking her 4th loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown in her business and her loan amount. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling fruits and vegetables. She operates a vegetables and fruit stall where she sells plantains, cassava, oranges, bananas and other tropical products. Her loan will be used to expand this inventory. She will use the profits to invest in her family expenses and to improve her living condition. She still dreams of having a successful business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Marta, Juana, Felina, Isaura, Anilia*, Nene, Macreca, Susana, Enrique, Rafael
