Paulino's story

Paulino, a married man, lives together with his wife. In his business, Paulino sells gasoline on one of the main routes from Samana. Paulino is a member of the group called Nuevo Progreso (New Progress), located in the city of Samana. He has had his business for over 10 years, started from his savings.

This is his fifth loan, which he will use to improve his house. After his last loan, which he invested in his business, Paulino realised the need to finish building his home, and with his business profits he began this renovation. He now needs to construct the roof; he is requesting this loan to buy cement and other necessary materials. The other members of his group are recommending him for a housing loan to finish the house construction.

Esperanza Internacional runs a programme for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their business and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their house at the same time as running their business and attending their group meetings. Paulino thanks God, Esperanza Internacional and all of you for this opportunity. In his name and that of his family, he thanks all of you for your support!
