Esperanza Y Progreso : Grupo 2 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to help a Haitian immigrant to buy gasoline to sell in her community.

Esperanza Y Progreso : Grupo 2 Group's story

Clarice is a Haitian immigrant. Six years ago she came to the Dominican Republic looking for better living conditions. She came alone, and here she met her husband and had children. The difficult financial situation makes a lot of Haitian citizens have to leave for other countries seeking better opportunities as they flee the difficult poverty situation.

Clarice has been selling gasoline for two years. The need in the area motivated her to undertake this business. Clarice says that with this business she generates earnings that help support her family. Clarice was not able to finish school. She only went through the second year of high school. However, this does not impede her working and giving the best of herself. Clarice needs your help in order to stock her business by purchasing more gasoline in order to continue selling.
