San Pedro de Macorís, San Pedro de Macorís Province, Dominican Republic / Retail

Emma's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy goods such as tinned produce, flour, soap, clothing and footwear, among other items, in order to maintain her client base.

Emma's story

Emma is from Haiti. She has been living in the Dominican Republic for around 35 years. She is an enterprising woman, full of life and her desire to make progress led her to emigrate with her family. Emma is now a widow but she continues to do business so she can move forward.

Emma started selling clothing in 1997, then she included fried food and finally she started a small shop. She continues with her three businesses. She travels to the capital, Santo Domingo to search for goods, and to San Pedro. She dreams of finishing her house, which is half-built, and of helping her children to become professionals.

She thinks that having a mode of transport, either a car or a truck, would make it easier to move her merchandise. She sells from home and she also travels to the market to make her sales.

Emma is requesting her 11th loan with Esperanza, which she will invest in products for her shop and she will use another portion to buy clothing and footwear. Please support Emma with this loan.

Emma gives her thanks for the support provided to Haitian immigrants in the Dominican Republic, who are driven by their love for their families.
