Fe Y Esperanza Group's story

The group called "Fe y Esperanza" (Faith and Hope) is in its first loan cycle. The members are learning to work together. They want to grow to be able to help their families through their work, since they don't want them to experience the needs that they experienced. Señora Isabel is the president of the group. She is a beautician and manicurist. She is the mother of two daughters who are already independent. She lives with her husband in their own house. She attends the meetings of her group and works in solidarity with her fellow group members and constantly motivates them so that everyone works with effort and enthusiasm. Señora Isabel's loan is for the purchase of beauty supplies such as dyes, shampoo, rinses, creams, and other items to increase her variety, which will help her to work out her business plan and increase her income and her customer base.

In this group: Isabel, Gerarda, Sixta, Flavia, Rosa, Casilda, Gladys, Juliana*, Alba*, Sonia, Rosalva, Ana, Blanca*, Ady, Estela
