Esperanza Group's story

This group is called the Esperanza group and it is in its eighth cycle of the committee programme. It is a very active group, which, through the poverty elimination survey used as a means to assess the living circumstances of each member, and the training that they receive, is managing to improve the income and life quality of members.

One of its members is Fatima. In her most recent survey, she scored a level poverty of one, which means that she should keep working hard to improve little by little. All of this through effort and continuous work and her job dressmaking, decorating and hairdressing. She is a very hard-working woman who has a young spirit and a great desire to move forwards and succeed.

Fatima is requesting this loan to buy fabric, needles, dyes, scissors, and other items so that she can continue to fulfill the orders of her customers, and improving her living conditions.

In this group: Dora, Ceveriana, Lilian, Gregoria, Miguela, Elida, Eugenia, Ramona, Andresa, Elva, Monica, Blacida, Adolfina, Selva, Fatima*, Clara*, Lorenza*
