Trabajando Para El Futuro 3, 4 & 5 Group's story

Luz is the coordinator of her borrower group, Trabajando para el Futuro (Working Toward the Future). This group is located in Samana, a lush, rugged peninsula with a nascent tourism industry. Here, running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. Luz makes her home in a simple structure with her long-time partner and their four children.

Luz is excited to be taking her 17th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her cafeteria by purchasing necessary products such as bread, cheese, ham, beans, sweets (candies), and other comestible items as well as a blender.

Luz will use the profits to improve her business, to rebuild her house, and to provide for her family's needs. She dreams that her children will grow up to be good people. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Luz, Ana, Fernando, Ludovina, Juana, Miguel, Confesora, Isabel, Yrene, Margarita, Ana*, Rosy, Rosy, Cacterin, Teresa
