Confianza Y Dignidad 1 Group's story

Eridania is a member of the Confianza y Dignidad (Truth and Dignity) 1 loan group. The members of this group are micro-entrepreneurs who make a living by selling clothing, assorted merchandise, shoes, crafts, etc. They sell their items in the city of Hato Mayor, a farming community in the country's northeast.

She lives in a simple home with her long-term partner and their two children. Her most difficult challenges have been to establish her business and get new customers. From the beginning, it was very hard for her because she need to do business outside of her community, in a village that produces cacao, to do her milling there

Eridania is very excited about receiving her eighth loan from Esperanza Internacional, and has repaid her previous loans satisfactorily after using them to expand her business. She has had her business for about six years, and has been taking out loans from Esperanza for about four years. She will use this new loan to buy more cacao and equipment that will allow her to produce more milled cocoa. She will reinvest the profits in her business and set aside some money as savings. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Eridania, Esperanza, German, Yohemi, Juan
