La Esperanza Group's story

La Esperanza Group, of which three members live below the poverty line, is in its third loan cycle. The women are struggling to improve their lives and help their families by putting themselves to work. One of the members, Mrs. Ramona, who finds herself in level two poverty according to the most recent survey, has a small Kiosk where she works every day from the early morning hours until late. Her dream is to be able to go on growing her business to achieve better revenues and help her family. She is taking out this loan to buy grocery items, which will allow her to stock her business and go on with the means to support her family.
