A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy used clothing.

Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

Raquel M., a member of this group loan and the hardworking mother of two children, is doing everything possible, along with her husband, to feed those children, but at the moment they are not earning sufficient money to ether educate them or feed everyone in the house. The family is currently totally dependent on the money Raquel's husband earns while Raquel stays at home to take care of their children.

Raquel came to Esperanza International after learning about it through a friend, and after several meetings and workshops she has decided to start a small business selling used clothing out of her house, where she can still watch over the kids. She feels that having her own business could really help out the family, and hopefully someday pull them out of the poverty they are in. Raquel is therefore excited about requesting the loan and starting the business, dreaming that one day she will have a big business and be able to send her children to college.

She knows this is just the first step, and there is still a lot of work ahead. Raquel is ready for this new challenge, and she and her family are very appreciative of this possibly life-changing opportunity!!
