Comunidad Unido 7 Group's story

Reyna is the group coordintor of Comunidad Unido (United Community) which is based in the slums north of Santo Domingo, an area where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable at best. Here she lives alone in a small house maD. of scrap metal which she owns, though she does not have title to her home.

She came to Esperanza because she wants to improve her life and believes that access to credit would help improve her business. She sells jewelry and shoes from her home, and having completed her first loan term successfully, she is now requesting a loan to purchase five rings, five chains and women's shoes to sell. With the profits from this business she plans to pay for her daily living expenses, including food and medicine.

This is very important to her as her business is her only source of income. She is confident that in the future her situation will continue to improve, and she plans to expand her business into a salon which will generate a solid reliable income so that she can remain independent. She thanks all of you for your support.
