Fe Y Esperanza Group's story

The “Faith and Hope” Group is in its 4th loan cycle with the Women's Committee Program, where everyone works and helps each other to get ahead. These women are attempting to eliminate poverty, by helping each other understand what their income is. As a result,it is clear that 6 of the members earn a very low income.

One of the members is Maria, who is getting ahead and assisting her family by her work baking cakes. Maria says she is doing well and, thanks to her work, she is improving her quality of life. Maria is a person who from the outset, has always worked hard and she has no fear of doing so.

Maria is soliciting this loan to purchase supplies for cake baking, including wheat flour, eggs, butter and other items. Maria is grateful for this opportunity which she and her companions are receiving.

In this group: Maria, Mariela, Alma, Martha, Salvadora, Graciela, Paola*, Lourdes*, Inocencia*, Noelia, Cristina, Analia, Adolfina, Maria, Denice, Maria, Pablina, Gloria
