Mujeres Con Proposito Group's story

Yesenia N. M. is a bank coordinator for the bank of Mujeres con Propositos. She is 33 years old and lives with her 36-year-old husband. They have three children: 12, 8 and 6 years old. Fifteen women from the bank are now looking for their second loan.

Yesenia has a business selling candy to students at a school in her neighborhood. The school has about 120 students and she visits it twice per day. Before her first loan she had sales of about 500 pesos per month, but after receiving a loan from Esperanza, her sales have increased to over 2000 pesos per month. With a new loan, she hopes to increase her business even more.

Yesenia is herself a student. She has been studying at a university in the evenings for the past four years to become a teacher. She will finish her education in a year and will be able to work as a teacher then. She wants to continue selling candy, but hopes it will be possible for her to have her own colmado (small shop) one day.

In her spare time Yesenia likes to read and mentioned Juan Bosch as her favorite author. She hopes that she will be able to help her children so that they too will have an opportunity to study at the university.

On behalf of Yesenia N. M., Mujeres con Propositos, and all of us here at Esperanza International: thank you for your support!
