Firmes Y Bendecidos #1 Group's story

Dienona Y. is one of the hardest working women we have met, not the least reason is she's the proud mother to 12 children! However, having 12 children brings a lot of expenses, and when you are living in extreme poverty it is very difficult to pay all those expenses. Dienona came to Esperanza International in need of help, hoping to receive a loan to help start her own business. With her first loan she started a small school in her area and received enough students to pay back all her loans and also start educating her kids. Since that first loan, she has taken out three other loans and is now seeking her fifth. She has increased the size of her school and can now afford to start saving money while also helping many kids get a quality education. The best part is she is able to teach all her children, and hopefully help them have a better future and get out of their poverty. She is very happy with what she does and wants to keep increasing the size of her school. She dreams of having a giant school teaching thousands of kids and hiring more teachers. She is excited about this next loan and knows it will help her continue reaching her dreams!
