Fulgencia's story

Fulgencia is one of Esperanza Internacional's entrepreneurs. She came to Esperanza Internacional almost three years ago for a loan to expand her business. She is receiving her 6th loan and will use it for her home's improvement. She is running a business where she sells underwear. She lives in a rural area in the Puerto Plata.

Fulgencia is the mother of two children, one of whom lives with her and her long term partner. Because they are living in deteriorated housing, she is requesting a loan which she will use to improve her situation by purchasing building materials to finish her house. She will buy a door, ceramic tiles for her floor, and she will cover with cement her concrete blocks walls. With this loan she will be able to finish building what she started several years ago.

Esperanza Internacional is running a program where their clients pay back their loans, fulfill the commitment to expand their businesses, and show reliability in their groups. They then can request loans to improve their house structure while they are running their businesses and attending group meetings.
