Mujeres Unidas 3 And 4 Group's story

These 10 entrepreneurs are the new members of the Mujeres Unidas Bank of Hope from VilL. MelL.. They live in the farthest northern neighborhood of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Ornise M. is the Group 3 Coordinator. She doesn’t speak much Spanish so her fellow group members helped with her interview and also described some of their own businesses and why they decided to get together on a microloan.
Ornise sells clothing which she buys in bundles. She travels from Santo Domingo all the way to Dajabon, a city on the border with Haiti with a large commercial market. It is about a 5½ hour riD.. Another member of the group is involved with the same business. The other businesses incluD. a butcher shop and a fried food stand. Two of the members own colmados (convenience stores).
Carine D. L. C. is the Group 4 Coordinator. This group was interviewed during a visit to Esperanza International’s DR headquarters in Santo Domingo. Carine also sells clothing. She would like to increase her business profits to build a reputation in her area. In general, the group members indicate that loans help them to keep their businesses stocked and allow them to have merchandise available for longer periods of time. They are very excited to be receiving their first microloan through Esperanza International. Please help us to support their business initiatives. Thank you!
