Luz's story

Luz is a member of the group called La Colmena (The Hive), located in the city of Samana. This is her 9th loan, which she will use to improve her house. She has had her business for over five years, starting when she took her first loan from Esperanza Internacional. Since then she has repaid all her loans and expanded her business.

After her last loan, which she invested in her business, Luz realized the need to build her home. She had started building it on a plot of land she had but she could only build the walls. She talked to other members of her group and they recommended her for a housing loan to finish building the floor and the roof.

Esperanza Internacional runs a program for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their business and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their house at the same time as running their business and attending their group meetings.

Luz is the single mother of two children. She works and lives in a rural town. Luz will use this loan to buy wood, zinc, nails, cement and other construction materials to build her floor and a zinc roof. She thanks God, Esperanza Internacional and all of you for this opportunity. In her name and that of her family, she thanks all of you for your support!
