Union Y Amor 1 Group's story

Yris is one of our associates from the Hato Mayor Branch, a rural town whose economy depends on agriculture. She is the coordinator for the group called Union y Amor (Union and Love) 1. She has been running a grocery store for seven years, which she started with her first loan from Esperanza. She will invest this loan in her grocery store. She will buy products like rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, canned food, and many other goods.

Yris lives with a child and her long term partner in their simple structure home. She says that her most difficult challenge is to improve her business, and provide a good education for her child. She enjoys working in her business. She is very excited to be receiving her 11th loan from Esperanza Internacional. She plans to save the profits for future plans. One of the goals is to rebuild her house with a better and safer structure. She thanks you all for your support!
