Guerreros Para Cristo 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Martha is the coordinator of her group, Guerrero para Cristo 1, 2, & 3 (Warrior for Christ). This group is located in the rural area surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. She is mother of two and she lives together with her children and her long-term partner. To earn a living, she operates a food stall where she sells chicken, meat, rice, beans and other fruits and vegetables. She says that her most difficult challenge is when her children get sick. In the meantime, she plans to continue studying to become professional.

Martha is excited to be taking her sixth loan with Esperanza. She has been saving her profits because, through this business, she wants to make one of her dreams come true: to have a successful business, with which she can be able to have a safer home and provide for her family.

In this group: Martha, Joset, Taiana, Pholus, Marilene, Solange, Maria, Fior, Amisio*, Marie, Rosa, Maria, Andrelie, Sonia, Susana
