La Fuente De Bendicion 1 Group's story

Carmen is one of the members of the group called La Fuente de Bendicion 1. She works selling food. She cooks it to sell daily for lunch to people working in her area. This is called a comedor (neighborhood small restaurant). She runs it in her community, which is a rural area surrounded by forests and mountains. Carmen started her business around 10 years ago with her personal savings. She sells creole and homemade plates like rice, beans, chicken, etc.

Carmen lives near Bahia, in the town of Hato Mayor, an agricultural zone. She has four children and lives with her long-term partner. Her most important challenge is to have a successful restaurant. Carmen is requesting her eighth loan from Esperanza International. Because her loan repayments have all been made punctually, she has been able to grow her business with the re-investment from each loan. She has had the opportunity to improve her life and family and expand her business to get more clients.

Carmen would like to save her profits to finish building her house and give her family some economic changes for the future. In the future, she wants to have a successful business. She thanks you all for your support!!!

In this group: Carmen, Ramona, Irma, Robinson, Avelina
