A loan of $2,000 helped a member to purchase fruit to sell.

Miramar Femenina- Group 4's story

Ms. Rosa D. has accessed loans from Esperanza for four years. She has operated her business for five years. She owns a fruit shop where she sells items ranging from bananas to melons. Although she started business a year prior to receiving her first loan, her business needed a strong financial boost from Esperanza. Her loans are currently used to purchase the fruit that she sells. She is an avid member of her church and also enjoys going to the nearby beach and dancing. Her favorite food is fried fish. Rosa hopes to expand her business by beginning to sell more items such as chicken. This will increase her income and allow her to better provide for herself and her family.

Ms. Rosa D. is a member of a 5 person group (Group 4) that is part of a 35 person micro-bank called Miramar Feminina. In the picture, Ms. D. is first on the left. She is pictured with her group members and other members of the micro-bank.

Rosa's story is just one of a list of men and women who are improving their quality of life through the help of Esperanza's micro-credit loans. This group has united with a common vision of a better life with faith and hope in their hearts and an unbreakable spirit. Each associates in this bank has a similar business, whether it is selling fruit or operating a taxi service. Thank you for your support.

In this group: Rosa, Senobia, Florencia, Ana, Ramona
