Mujeres Bendecidas 3 Group's story

Altagracia is the coordinator of her group, Mujeres Bendecidas (Blessed Women), 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 urban slums surrounding Santo Domingo, an area where crime is rampant and 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 three children. Altagracia is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza and she believes that working with Esperanza will improve her sales. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business of making and selling underwear, by purchasing panties, bras and materials such as sequins and beads for making lingerie. She will use the profits to invest in her dreams of owning a car, improving her home and seeing her children through to the university. She thanks you all for your support.
