La Esperanza 3 Group's story

This group’s name is ”La Esperanza III” and is in its fourth cycle. All 26 women that are part of the group feel enthusiastic and want to get ahead and work to help their families.

One of the group’s members is Mrs. Elva, who was found to be living in poverty level 3 in the last survey she took. She has improved a lot, by working hard in order to give her family all they need. Elva sells “asaditos” [grilled meat, churrascos] and says that she has a good customer base that loves the taste of the food she makes. Her goal is to continue growing to improve her income and help her family.

Elva is requesting a loan to buy skewers, meat, cassava and other supplies needed to continue preparing her churrascos and generating income to help her family.
