Mujeres Hacia El Progreso 2, 3, 4 & 5 Group's story

Patricia is one of the members of the Grupo Mujeres Hacia el Progreso 2, 3, 4 & 5 made up of 20 micro business owners. They all work selling clothes, natural products, shoes, food, etc. Patricia is very excited to be receiving her sixth loan from Esperanza Internacional, after having paid off her previous loan satisfactorily and taken a step towards business growth. She has had her business selling clothes for around four years. She started the business with her own resources.

Patricia is planning to invest her new loan towards purchasing clothes, underwear and swimwear. She is going to use her earnings to continue saving. With previous loans, she started increasing her sales and saving. She is dreaming of having an improved business, to get married and to have her children. She tells us that her most difficult challenge was to establish her business and to finish studying. She loves to watch television and to help at the church.
