Jesuscristo Es La Puerta 1, 4 Group's story

Oliva is the coordinator of her group Jesucristo es L. puerta 1 & 4 (Jesus Christ 1 & 4). She is married and has six children. Her most difficult challenges are giving her family what they need, including clothing, school, and housing. Oliva is taking out her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She has had her business for four years, which she started with her own capital. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing clothing for men, women, and children. She will use the profits to save and if possible, to invest. Oliva began with Esperanza because she wants to invest in her business. 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 L. Romana, where the sugar cane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. This area, like nearly all impoverished areas of the Dominican Republic, suffers from unreliable running water (none of which is potable) and electricity.
