Nuevo Progreso 3.1 Group's story

Pura is one of Esperanza Internacional's entrepreneurs. She came to Esperanza Internacional almost six years ago for a loan to expand her business. She joined the group Nuestro Progreso 3.1 (Our Progress) in one of the rural villages in Samana, where she has received eleven loans to invest in her business.

Esperanza Internacional is running a program where most of their clients pay back their loans, fulfill the commitment to expand their businesses, and show fidelity to their groups. They can request loans to improve their house structure, while running their business loans and attending group meetings.

Pura is living in a rural town with her long-term partner and their two children. She started building her house with her profits she saved. She took out loans with Esperanza to expand her business selling clothes. Pura will finish building her house with this loan to cover the concrete block wall and to construct the roof.

Pura and Carmen joined to take out this Housing loan together as a group. They will support each other in this challenge. Each of them will finish building her house walls and roof. Pura and Carmen thank you all for your support!!!

In this group: Pura, Carmen
