Ulloa Group's story

Damaris Santana is the credit assistant of BDE Ulloa which is composed of 5 people, including Jesemene Z., a woman whose goal is to advance her business and build a concrete house. Jesemene buys merchandise to sell it in her community and in rural areas. She has a small grocery store and usually sells sweets also. She has also worked selling gasoline and wants her business to grow in a healthy way and have better output with the loan that she invested in it.

Jesumene is part of a larger group of 4 other women and me; her loan represents the other individuals in her Bank of Hope. Her group members have businesses in everything ranging from small grocery stores, to clothing and shoe sales.

On behalf of Jesumene, her group, and everyone here at Esperanza International-- we thank you for your support!

In this group: Jesumene, Benita, Genel, Robert, Claudia
