Dios Es Mi Esperanza 3, 4 & 7 Group's story

Alina is the coordinator of her group, Dios es mi Esperanza 3, 4 & 7 (God is my Hope). This group is comprised of fifteen micro-entrepreneurs, both women and men, and is located in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. Their community is located in a rural area, surrounded by fields of sugarcane. Alina sells clothes, especially blue jeans. She will use her part of this loan to increase her inventory. Alina started her business almost four years ago by taking loans and investing the money in her business. Alina is a single mother and lives with her two children. Her biggest challenge is raising her children. She is receiving her 7th loan from Esperanza Internacional, and because her previous loan repayments have all been made punctually, she has been able to grow her business. She would like to save her profits to make bigger investments in the future. She thanks you all for your support!
