Esperanza Asegurada : 2,3 Group's story

Geranise, 33, emigrated from Haiti to the Dominican Republic for a better life. Together with her family, she lives in a sugar refinery in the town of Consuelo, province of San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic.

The economy of the province is very diversified, emphasized by tourism, industry (in the French zone), cattle, agriculture (citrus, but mostly sugar cane), and informal trade. It is the province where the majority of sugarcane mills can be found.

Geranise's work is very diversified. She sells gasoline by the bottle to motorists, since the fuel pumps are very far away from the refinery. She sells charcoal to her neighbors that cook on portable stoves. She sells clothing and shoes that she buys in town to maintain the cash flow of her business. This type of business is very common among Haitian immigrants, and her business stays active.

Geranise needs a loan to buy charcoal and gasoline, as well as clothing and shoes for her business, and to increase her clientele.

Thank you for having confidence in the abilities of the Esperanza Asegurada: 2, 3 group.
