La Esperanza Del Futuro Group's story

This group is called “La Esperanza de Futuro” (The Hope of Future) and it’s located in a community called Benito Juárez that’s an hour from Copainalá where the feast of Saint Philip is celebrated. The person who was interviewed is Marta. She’s married to Genaro and they have two children, one who is no longer dependent on them and one who still lives at home.

She’s a housewife and requested the loan to buy cheese to resell outside her community at a price that will produce good profits. She’s been in this activity for some years now and comments that she does well because her income improves every day. She started this activity to help her husband with household income and to be able to support her son’s schooling. What she wants from this small business is to continue working and in time have a larger cheese store.

The other group members are: Berosia, who will invest the loan in her bakery and María Deysi who will invest it in cheese.

In this group: Martha , Beroisa , Maria Deysi
