Las Colmenas Group's story

Yanna is the group coordinator of Las Colmenas. Her group is located in the Samana province of the Dominican Republic and is composed of 20 micro-entrepreuners. She lives in a simple home structure with her two children and her long-term partner. Yanna said her most difficult challenges have been to complete her university studies and raise and educate her children.

This is Yanna's ninth loan with Esperanza. She started her business with the first loan she received from Esperanza International almost five years ago. She plans to use this loan to purchase different pairs of shoes, for men, women and kids. She has been selling shoes from the beginning and now she is planning to add clothes, underwear and other products. She hopes to increase her inventory with her business profits. She also hopes to save some of the profits because her future plan is to improve her family's living conditions, have enough money to provide a good education for her children, and send the children to university.

She hopes to be able to save enough money to continue improving her family's lives and to make one of her dreams come true, the dream of having a successful business. She thanks you for your support!
