Luz Y Esperanza 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Gricelda is one of the members of a group called Luz y Esperanza 1, 2 & 3, comprised of fifteen micro-businesspeople who sell clothes, natural products, shoes, food, and other items. They are located in the city of Samana, a developing tourist town that lies on the Atlantic coast and is rich in natural resources. Gricelda is a single mother with two children.

Gricelda runs a comedor, which is a little restaurant that serves lunch in her neighborhood. Gricelda has operated her business for around eight years now and began it with savings she had. She is very excited to be receiving her 8th Esperanza Internacional loan. Gricelda has successfully repaid her previous loans and has taken steps to expand her business.

Gricelda is requesting a loan to purchase chicken, rice, vegetables, beans, other meats and cooking oil for her to cook daily meals for her clients. She will reinvest the profit from her loan in her business. She thanks you all for your support!
