Mujeres Unidas En Amor 1 & 2 Group's story

Shara is the coordinator of her group, Mujeres unidas en Amor 1 & 2 (United women with love). Her group is located in Los Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial area north of the capital where free trade zones are common. She makes her home in a simple structure with her husband and their three children. She says that her most important challenge is to progress on her goals to expand her business. In the meantime she plans to continue serving in her church.

Shara is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She has had her business for approximately 6 years. She produces and sells Empanada (a fried dough filled with meat and vegetables). She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying flour, meat, cooking oil, vegetables and other goods. She will use the profits to save and to provide for the needs in her family, and also to reinvest in her cooking business. She wishes to have a successful business and help her children attend university.

In this group: Shara, Ibelisse, Yonida, Carmen, Pedro, Lucia, Luisena, Ovidia, Belkis, Rosa
