La Misericordia Group's story

Esperanza is another member of this group. She is 26 years old. She attended school through high school and is married to Edi, with whom she has a daughter. She tells us that in her home she was taught from a very young age to work which is why now that she is married she has set up her own business in order to help her husband provide a better quality of life to their daughter.

Esperanza sells hot dogs and hamburgers on the weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) in a small stand that she rents in the middle of her neighborhood. She has had this business for 3 years so she has customers who always make purchases. What she likes best about her work is that it is only on the weekends so that she can spend the rest of the week taking care of her family.

She will use this loan to buy hot dogs, meat, bread, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, tomato, chilies, onion, bacon, oil and soft drinks to make her meals. She wants her business to continue growing and to invest her profits in the purchase of a few tables and chairs to provide better service to her customers.
