Buena Vida 1,2,3 Group's story

Debora is the coordinator of her group La Buena Vida (The Good Life), 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 the rural areas surrounding Hato Mayor, an agricultural area where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with her husband. Debora is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business of selling purses by purchasing them in the main markets in Santo Domingo and then selling them at a profit. She will use the profits to invest in first repairing her current home and then saving towards purchasing her own own home. She thanks you all for your support.
