La Esperanza Group's story

The group “La Esperanza” (The Hope) is in its fourth loan cycle. The members are also taking a poverty elimination survey. Through their continued work and efforts, they apply the important behaviors needed to become successful women. As a result, they have improved their situations in terms of poverty. The photo shows 14 women. One of them is not participating in the loan, but she is still part of the group.


One of these women is Sra. Maria. She generates sales from a small food pantry that is well-stocked with all types of products that her neighbors need. Maria tries to keep everything they like on hand so that they will continue to visit her shop. Thanks to her work, Maria is able to help her family and provide everything they need to have a decent life and not feel deprived.


Maria is requesting a loan in order to buy dairy products, baked goods, vegetables, and other items so that she can continue to restock her business. This will enable her to offer her customers the variety of items that they are accustomed to having.

In this group: Perla, Nilda, Gloria, Hermelinda, Rosa, Domitila, Stela, Maria, Veronica, Diana, Martina, Maria, Leopoldina
