Caminando Hacia El Progreso 1 & 7 Group's story

Maria is one of the members of the group Caminando Hacia el Progreso (Walking to the Future) 1 & 7. This group is located in a rural community surrounded by sugarcane fields in the outskirts of San Pedro de Macoris. Maria will be sharing in a 174,500 DOP loan the group is applying for from Esperanza.


Maria makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner and a child. For the past four years she has operated a beauty salon where she serves her clients and sells different products. She started her salon with her own capital after saving for a while.


Maria is excited to be a part of this third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan portions and grown her business. She plans to use her loan to invest in her salon by buying hair and beauty products, cosmetics and other beauty supplies.


Maria says that her most difficult challenges are improving her business and helping her family. Nevertheless, she plans to continue enjoying working in her salon.

In this group: Maria, Viergilie, Germania, Gertrudis, Yajaira, Matania, Persia, Italiane, Lecodia, Juana
