Yosimara's story

Yosimara is one of Esperanza Internacional's entrepreneurs. She is a married woman with a child. They live together with her husband in a simple home structure. She is working hard to change her home structure, and with her husband, they decided to take a loan with Esperanza to continue improving their house. Yosimara has been taking loans with Esperanza Internacional since she started her business with her first loan with Esperanza Internacional almost six years ago. She is receiving her 11th loan and this one is to build a bathroom. She will add a room in her house where she will build the bathroom. Now it is in her backyard, a little far away. She is one of the members in the group called Paz y Fe (Peace and Faith) located in one of the rural villages in the city of Samana. With this loan she will buy concrete blocks, cement, a toilet, a sink and other building materials. Esperanza Internacional runs a program for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their business and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their houses at the same time as running their businesses and attending their group meetings. Yosimara thanks all of you for your support!
