A loan of $4,250 helped a member to invest in the improvement of her used and new clothing business.

El Buen Futuro ( A Good Future) Group's story

Silverina lives with her two children and husband in a small rural town in the Dominican Republic. She runs a small business selling new and used clothes from her home, and occasionally she sells her merchandise on the streets of her community. She also sells gasoline by the gallon to her community members -- people often buy gasoline in smaller quantities here because it is so expensive -- which is a profitable business.

She is requesting a loan to buy a better selection of clothes to sell, and a to buy a larger quantity of gasoline. It is her goal to own her own store where she can sell a variety of clothes, and operate a real gas station.

She hopes her children will continue studying and that within a few years she will have saved enough to buy their own home.

On behalf of everyone here at Esperanza International, and from Silverina herself, we thank you for your support with this micro loan!
