Shalom 2 Group's story

Lucia is the coordinator of the group "Shalom 2," named like this in honor to the biblical word. This group is located in Hato Mayor city, in the eastern part of the country. The group includes five micro-business people who sell clothes, natural products, shoes, food, etc.

Lucia's family includes herself, her long-term partner and two children from the six they have. She is very excited to receive her 11th loan with Esperanza Internacional after having duly repaid her previous loan and taken steps to grow her business. She has had her business for about five years. She started it when she took her first loan.

Lucia plans to invest her new loan in her business. She is running a cafeteria, where she sells sandwiches, juice and other snack food. She will invest this loan to purchase goods for sandwiches, hot dogs, natural juices, fried food and other snack food. She will use her business profits to expand her business. She thanks you for your support.

In this group: Lucia, Maura, Bienvenido, Epifania, Beatriz
