Unidos Podemos 1 Group's story

Victoria is one of our associates from the Seybo Branch, a rural town whose economy depends on agriculture. She is the coordinator for the group called Unidos podemos 1 (United we can 1). She has been running a grocery store for eight years, a store she started with her first loan from Esperanza. She will invest this loan in her grocery store, buying products like rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, canned food, and many other goods. Victoria lives with her long term partner in their simple-structure home, and they have four children. She says that her most difficult challenge is to improve her business, her home structure and provide for her children. She enjoys working at her business. She is very excited to be receiving her 11th loan from Esperanza. She plans to save the profits for future ventures. One of the goals is to rebuild her house with a better and safer structure. She thanks you all for your support!

In this group: Victoria, Ysabel, Rafaela, Antonio, Felicia
