A loan of $1,925 helped a member buying products for her small store.

Mujeres De La Fe Group's story

Rosa B. is hoping to receive her second loan. She came to Esperanza International around 6 months ago with no job and was having a difficult time providing for her only child. She comes from a very poor city in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.

After receiving her first loan, she started a small stand selling various types of candy and other small items. With this next loan she hopes to expand her business and sell a more varied selection of goods. Her goal is to one day have her own grocery store. She said that she has never been more happy than she is right now. She has finally found a way to have a steady income, and she also found something was all hers.

Rosa wakes up every day excited to go to her business and excited to try and improve what she has. She said she can finally provide for her child and wants to send him to a college someday. She feels like this next loan is just going to help her expand even more, and she is so excited about this opportunity!
