Rayen Wuapi Group's story

Luzmira, who appears in the photo on the right-hand side, smiling and wearing black with a belt, lives in Castro. She belongs to the communal bank Rayen Wuapi, where the members have parcel services, sell lingerie, run truck farms; some have dressmaker shops, produce shops, and beauty salons. Luzmira has a beauty shop. She began her business about 20 years ago, because she studied for this. Although she stopped working for a while when she had her son, now she has gone back to work. She expresses thanks that she hasn’t had problems with her business. She says that the money she is asking for will be used to buy and restock some supplies that she needs in her salon. She is very excited because she knows that things will go well for her this cycle. Additionally, she says that she is very happy and thankful to be able to work with Fondo Esperanza because she hadn’t found another place where they support her and help her so much, where they are concerned with teaching and training women to improve their businesses day by day.
