Los Geranios 1 & 2 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator of her group, Los Geranios (The Geraniums), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in Los Alcarrizos, a dusty, industrial town where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their two children. Maria is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling used clothing, which she buys in bulk packages that arrive from places like the Salvation Army. She will use the profits to invest in her children's future as well as improving her home. She thanks you all for your support.
