Esperanza Para Vivir 1 Group's story

Mayra is the coordinator of her group Esperanza Para Vivir 1 (Hope For Life). The group is located in Santiago, the second biggest city in the Dominican Republic, and known for its tobacco and beef production. The group members are dedicated to selling clothes, food, shoes and jewelry.

Mayra is a single woman without children who lives in a simple house with her parents’ family. Besides helping her parents financially, she is dedicated to working hard to save money and grow her business.

Mayra has been running her business for around four and a half years. She started taking loans with Esperanza International because she needed capital to increase her sales and inventory. She is excited that her group is taking a fifth loan, this one for 145,000 DOP, from which she will receive a portion to buy various products like cosmetics, clothes and shoes.

Mayra will reinvest her profits in her business. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Mayra, Altagracia, Angelita, Yvelisse, Juana
