Grupo 1, 2 & 6 Group's story

Francisca belongs to the “Grupo Brisas 1 & 2” (Breezes 1 & 2 Group). The group is comprised of fifteen members with small businesses who sell different products. Francisca’s family is made up of her long-term partner and their three children. They live in a rented home, which is a simple structure built of wood. Her most difficult challenge has been always working to bring in extra income for her family and provide for her children's education. She enjoys to work.

Francisca’s business is a small butcher shop. She sells bacon, pork and salty beef. She will use this new loan to buy several pounds of this meat. She has been working in this business for about four and a half years. This is her 6th loan with Esperanza Internancional. She will use her business profits to help with the needs of her family and her house: she will be able to buy more and better food and save so that in the long-term they will be able to have their own house.

This group is located in an area with scant resources in the city of Santo Domingo. It is to the north of the city.

In this group: Francisca, Tomasa, Yocasta, Lucrecia, Juana, Victoria, Leondrina, Julia, Sonia, Lucrecia, Felicia, Yesica, Viola, Maria, Maria
