Mujeres Capacitadas 1 & 2 Group's story

Justa is the coordinator of her group Mujeres Capacitadas (Capable Women) 1 & 2. Her group is located in Puerto Plata, a northern port town whose economy is dependent on tourism. She makes her home there in a simple structure as a single mother with four children.

Justa is excited to be taking out her ninth loan with Esperanza after having fully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling chicharrones (fried pork fat) and clothing by purchasing pork, different clothes and underwear to sell. She says, thanks to her loans, she has been able to establish her business and expanded it. With every loan, she has increased her sales and inventory. She will use her profits to continue improving her house.

With her past benefits and savings, it has been possible to rebuild her house, little by little, while she continues to sell and develop her business. Justa thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Justa, Milagros, Ysmelia, Isabel, Maria, Aracelis, Daninsa*, Segunda, Aurelia, Maria
