Amor Y Amistad 3 & 4 Group's story

Paula is the coordinator of this group called Amor y Amistad 3 & 4 ("Love and Friendship"). The area in which the borrowers live is a nascent tourist zone, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and mountains, rivers and natural breezes. Paula is a married mother who lives in the beautiful town of Samana with her three children. She says her most important challenge is to keep her business stable and sustainable. She enjoys working and serving the needs of her family and friends. Paula is receiving her twelfth loan with Esperanza Internacional, having repaid all her previous loans. After seven years of investment, her business has been growing to the point where she is selling a greater range of products and acquiring more clients and communities. Paula will use this loan to purchase clothing such as pants, skirts, blouses, shirts, and shoes for both women and men. She will reinvest her profits in her business and is also planning to add other high-demand products for school supplies. She thanks you all for your support!

In this group: Paula, Ariani, Johanna, Eugenia, Santa, Luiz, Nicolas, Rosalia, Miquella*, Tania
