Firmes Y Bendecidos #2 Group's story

Cecilla L. is a Esperanza International borrower who is hoping to receive her seventh loan. She has a small business selling her artwork, being a very talented painter. She has two young children and lives in an extremely poor area in Seybo, Dominican Republic. Before she began this business selling her artwork, Cecilla had a really hard time providing for her children. She did not have a steady income and her family were living day to day. Since Cecilla took out her first loan she has been growing her business, and now she can finally provide the basic comforts for her family. She wants to continue growing her business and dreams of having both her children attend a university and better their lives. She is loving what she does and is happy that she can call her business her own. She is excited about her next loan, and can't wait to see what the future holds for her and her family!
