Jehova Jireh 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Florinda is one of the members of her group named Jehova Jireh 1, 2 & 3. It is s a group made by 15 businesswomen dedicated to do different businesses in their houses and by walking. They are located in a rural area outside La Romana, between sugarcane fields. She is a married woman with 5 children, and four of them still live together with her in their simple structure home. Florinda has been operating her Comedor (a kind of local restaurant for lunch) around 4 years, where many people from the community attend to have lunch. She started with her savings 5 years ago. She is exciting to receive her second loan with Esperanza, because after she joined the program, she has felt more committed to her business. She plans to use this loan to buy rice, meat, seasoning, canned meals, vegetables, flour, cooking oil, etc. She will use her profits to reinvest in her businnes because she wants to have an improved business and to have her dream come true (to have her own house). Her story is generally representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti.
