Luis Mota lives in El Seibo, Dominican Republic. Things are hard in his community, he says, but thanks to loans from HOPE’s partner, Esperanza, he has been able to begin raising pigs and providing for his family. Through a series of loans, Luis has purchased 23 pigs. He plans to use future loans to invest in additional agricultural products. Luis has won the love and respect of his community members, who see him as a true example of perseverance and hope. With the help of additional loans, Luis is confident that his business will continue to grow and help him make great changes in his family’s life.
