Fuerza Divina 1 Group's story

Yohanny is the coordinator of her group, Fuerza Divina (Divine Force) 1. This group is located in Hato Mayor, a rural town where the economy is based around agriculture. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her three children.

Yohanny sells cosmetics in her house and by walking in her community and others nearby. She went into business using her savings, setting up a stall in her house. Almost a year ago she went to Esperanza and took out a loan that made it possible for her to invest a greater amount in her business and so earn more in profits.

Yohanny is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan. She is planning to use her loan to buy cosmetics such as body lotion, deodorant, beauty cream, make-up, and other products. Her profits will be reinvest in her business. She wants to improve it and sell more.

She thanks you for your support.

In this group: Yohanny, Clara, Nilcia, Reina, Eulalia
