A loan of $3,500 helped a member to buy shoes to sell.


La Buena Union 4 Group's story

Leonor is one of the members of the La Buena Unión (The Good Union) 4. They are micro entrepreneurs who are in clothing sales, sales of assorted merchandise, shoes, crafts, etc. Their sales points are in the city of Hato Mayor, a farming community in the northeast of the country.

She lives in a simple home structure with her long-term partner. She says her most difficult challenge has been to establish her business and improve it. From the beginning, it was very hard for her because she didn't have the capital for it.

Leonor is very excited about receiving her fifth loan from Esperanza Internacional, having repaid her previous loan satisfactorily and taken an important step toward her business’s growth. She has had her business for about five years; she has been taking out loans from Esperanza for about four years. She will use this new loan to buy shoes in different sizes and styles. She will use profits to reinvest in her business and to save. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Leonor, Hilario, Juana, Carolina, Ignacia
