Esperanza Para Vivir 1 Group's story

Mayra is the coordinator of her group Esperanza para Vivir 1 (Hope to live). The group is located in Santiago, the second biggest city in the Dominican Republic, known for its tobacco and beef production. The group members are dedicated to selling clothes, food, shoes and jewelry.

Mayra, who lives in a simple structure with her parents' family, is a single woman without kids. She is a dedicated woman, working hard and helping her parents, saving money for her future and increasing her business. Mayra started taking loans with Esperanza International because her business needed capital to increase her sales and inventory. Her business has been running for around 4 years and she is excited to be taking her third loan from Esperanza International to buy various products like cosmetics, clothes, shoes and others.

Mayra will reinvest her profits in her business. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Mayra, Bienvenida, Juana, Altagracia, Angelita
