A loan of $3,175 helped a member to buy merchandise for her handicraft.

Sevilla Group's story

The borrowers from the Sevilla group work in the buying and selling of fruit and vegetables, handicraft and food.

Veronica makes crafts like rocking chairs, sewing boxes, and things for mother's day and children's day. She sells on demand directly to people. She uses recycled materials for her products.

Veronica has another job so that she can have some stability, and she is going to use the loan to buy merchandise. In the future she wants to live on just the sale of her handicrafts, so that that will be her only source of income.

Veronica is a single mum and she lives with her parents. She is 37 years old. She has a 16 year old daughter who studies at university. She likes working with Fondo Esperanza because it lets her dream and think about establishing her business and not keep being dependent but have her own independent business. She also likes it because she has got to know people and been able to establish ties with the group.

In this group: Juan Mauricio, Veronica Ema, Cindy Elena, Nelson Eduardo, Gloria Haydee, Dagoberto Del Carmen, Sara Del Carmen, Andrea Elizabeth, Romanett Valesca, Veronica De Lourdes, Paola Francisca, Juan Carlos, Carolina Nicole, Viviana Pamela, Cesar Javier
