Unidos Con Cristo 1 Group's story

Unidos con Cristo or ¨United in Christ¨ are a group of hardworking Haitian immigrant and Haitian-Dominicans living in a rural community called a Batey. Bateys function around the life-cycle of sugarcane, seeing opportunities and growth during the harvest season and cyclically falling on hard times during the sugarcane dead season.

To smooth out these dramatic highs and lows, Yohanna and her group have decided to operate small businesses with hopes of improving their quality of life.

Yohanna knows all things about motors. She is the go-to person in her community for gasoline, motor oil, and motorcycle tires. As an experienced borrower she knows the advantages of investing your loan capital prudently, depending on the needs and interests of her customers. Yohanna dreams of attending a local university and studying to be a teacher of the Spanish language.

Thank you for your consideration of Yohanna and her group Unidos con Cristo!

In this group: Yohanna, Yafreisy, Lusana, Nereyda
