Trabajando Para El Futuro Group's story

"Trabajando para el futuro" or "Working for the future" is a large group of 20 hopeful people trying to receive a loan. This group is a great example of the power of micro-credit, and the effects it can have on the poor. This group is all hoping to receive their 6th or 7th loans. All the previous loans have all been paid back in full and on time, and now they hope to receive an even larger loan. This group of 20 hardworking people have all started to realize that they have the ability to change their future, and have all started to experience some success. Receiving a 7th loan is not something that all borrowers end up getting to, and that is in it self a great testament to the character and hard work of this group.

Ynes J. is the group representative, and a perfect example to represent this group. Ynes is a very outgoing, hardworking mother to 3 children. She is an extremely loving mother and has done everything in her power to proviD. her children with everything she never had. Ynes has lived in extreme poverty her whole life, and decided a few years back that she wanted to change her future and the future of her family. She received her first loan from Esperanza International and started a small salon from her house. From there she kept working hard and kept increasing the services and products of her salon, and today she has a very successful business. She can finally afford to pay for all of life's basic necessities, and even some luxuries. She has never been happier than she is now, and feels like she can beat poverty. The best part is that she is a testament to her children that they don't have to accept poverty as part of their lives, and can create a better life. Ynes is very excited about the future and is happy with the changes SHE maD. in her life! She is on the right path, and ready to keep increasing her business.

Thank you for your support of Ynes, and the group.
