Ruth Y Esther 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Rosa is the coordinator of her group Ruth Y Esther (Ruth and Esther) 1, 2 & 3. This group is located in the Samana, a lush, rugged area with a nascent tourism industry where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure as a single mother with two children. Rosa is excited to be taking her 13th loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business of selling assorted items in the street, including balloons, candy, mints, etc. She will use the profits for her children and family by providing all that her family needs and to save to construct her own house. She hopes also to continue saving with Esperanza so that she can have a cushion when she can't work anymore. She thanks you all for your support.
