A loan of $3,125 helped a member to purchase silver jewelry.


Eden 1 & 3 Group's story

This group of 10 entrepreneurs from Hato Mayor (northeastern Dominican Republic) is made up of members who are at different stages. For some of these borrowers, this will be their 7th loan with Esperanza International. For some others, just the third. They all express gratitude for having access to a loan that represents an incentive for their businesses that many microentrepreneurs in their area do not have. This helps them keep their businesses going even during these hard times when sales have decreased about 50% for most of them.

Ana S. is one of the two group representatives. She has 2 children with a large age difference: the eldest is 12 and the youngest is just one year old. Ana sells silver jewelry, mostly at her house but sometimes she takes it with her to show to acquaintances that live in other towns. She would like to have her own jewelry store to avoid traveling with it, which can be dangerous if someone knows about the merchandise you sell. She also hopes to be able to return to school one day and have a house of her own for herself and her children. Please help us continue supporting these microentrepreneurs with this Kiva loan. Thank you!

In this group: Ana, Ercilia, Atanairis, Mencia, Mercedes, Natividad, Martha, Damasa, Dinora, Dulce
