Dios Ante Todos 1-4 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase old televisions, fans, and household appliances.

Dios Ante Todos 1-4 Group's story

Bellande and his group, Dios Ante Todos ('God before Everything'), live in a semi-urban community on the outskirts of La Romana, a major city in the eastern region of the Dominican Republic. La Romana is a hub for the textile production that supports a portion of the DR's economy. As a group of borrowers, they have all decided to take small loans with Esperanza International in hopes of growing their meager income and creating a better future for themselves and their families.

Bellande stumbled into the work of being a handyman-- it was just something he is good at! He has taken his unique skills and turned them into a business with the support of his loans from Esperanza. He purchases old televisions, fans, and other household appliances from junk stores and neighbors alike. He then repairs and fixes up these previously useless items and sells them for a profit. He works hard to set a good example for his children and family.

Thank you for your consideration of Bellande and his group, Dios Ante Todo!
