Mata De Palma En Desarrollo 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Carmen is the coordinator of the group Mata de Palma en Desarrollo ("Mata de Palma in development" called like this because this is the name of the community). The group is is located, in Hato Mayor city, in the eastern part of the country. Hato Mayor is a fairly mountainous region where the principal industry is agriculture.

Carmen is a mother of four children and they live together with her and their father. She said that her most difficult challenge has been to create her business. In the past it was very difficult for her because she didn't have how to save a capital to start, but after she found Esperanza and took out her loans, she was able (like other members in this group) to open her business.

Carmen is excited about her 14th loan with Esperanza. After almost seven years in her business, she has expanded her little butcher shop into a bigger one, with more quantity of meats to supply more clients. With this loan she will buy beef and pork, to sell them in her business. She will use the profits to invest in her butcher shop and she will continuing saving part of it to make one of her dreams come true: to start building her house. She dreams of having a nice house and a successful business with employees. Carmen and her group thank all of you for your support.
