La Esperanza Group's story

The group “La Esperanza” (Hope) was born thanks to one of its members, who invited her friends and neighbors to form this group. It helps them to increase their income and also to continue helping their families.

Ms. Felipa is a businesswoman who sells all kinds of products, for example, cosmetics, clothing, shoes, etc. She is married to Mr. Oscar and they have four children. Felipa states that she has good sales and, since she always has good customers, her business is growing.

She states that she has a good customer base, but that she would like her business to continue to grow. She is applying for a loan in order to buy more cosmetics, clothing, shoes, etc. in order to have a greater variety of products to offer her customers. She is grateful for the opportunity that she is receiving, as it would be of great help, not only for her but also for the other members of the group.

In this group: Tania, Elva, Carolina, Sandra, Deolinda, Marlene, Mirtha, Marian, Bernarda, Elizabeth, Felipa, Rosileide, Lucila, Felicita
