Familia Unida De Inversiones Group's story

“La Familia Unida de Inversiones” or the Investment Family is a group of 15 entrepreneurs seeking their second loan from Esperanza International. The group’s past loan has been successfully repaid, and the group hopes to utilize a second loan for further business expansion. Mercedes is one of the coordinators of the group in Santiago. Mercedes, mother of seven (ages: oldest 34, youngest 16), operates two entrepreneurial activities out of her home. Door-to-door, Mercedes sells jars of a Dominican specialty dessert made of milk, sugar, vanilla, raisins and yams and within her home she operates men’s and women’s clothing and shoes sales. Mercedes desires to see growth in her business so that she will be able to construct a better home and continue to provide for the physical needs of her spouse and numerous children. On behalf of Esperanza and this group of business entrepreneurs, we would like to thank you for your support!

In this group: Milagros, Rosa, Carmen, Julia, Federico, Bianny, Sandra, Sandra, Leonardo, Reina, Mercedes, Yolanda, Glenys, Ana, Justino
