La Esperanza Group's story

The members of the “La Esperanza” (Hope) committee have set each of their growth as their main goal. They are known locally for being very hardworking women.

Emilia’s married. She’s active and promotes the committee’s strength by encouraging them to continue working and doing everything possible to help their families. She sells all types of food and has a good clientele since her dishes are very delicious and well-received by her customers.

She’s asking for this loan to buy meat, condiments, vegetables and others to continue making the meals she sells. She’s happy with her group because they all strive hard.

In this group: Emilia, Fidelina, Yeni, Mirian, Laura, Carmen, Rosa, Ramona, Teofila, Constancia, Prisilia, Teresa, Maria, Pabla, Nilsa
