Esperanza was born in 1969 and has three children who are 20, 17 and 14 years old. She currently cares for the two youngest children. Esperanza lost her husband in 1998 due to HIV.

Since his death, Esperanza has tested HIV+. Fortunately, her children have not.  Before working for True Vineyard Ministries she was cleaning and washing for other families, however this work was very difficult for her because of the HIV. Also, the work was not consistent. Esperanza joined True Vineyard Ministries in May 2012. Since she joined True Vineyard, she is able to buy food for her family and rent a proper house before the rainy season.

Esperanza accepted Jesus in 2000 and attends Grace Shalom Evangelical Church in Musanze.
