Luz Divina 1 & 2 Group's story

Rosa is the group coordinator of the group Luz Divina (Divine Light). Her story is representative of the other members of her group as well as of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whome recently moved from Haiti to the DR) clients more generally. Rosa's group is based in the industrial town of Los Alcarrizzos, a dusty city north of the capital where both running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable at best. Here she makes her home in a simple structure of cement walls and a tin roof with her husband and five school aged children. Her business is also located in her home.

Rosa has shown herself to be a reliable Esperanza client by completing one loan cycle with out problems. She is excited to take her next loan and with it she plans to invest in her business by purchasing a hair dryer, curling iron and hair products to sell in her store. She believes this will improve her profits and with those profits she plans to purchase school supplies for her children and hopefully a computer so that they will be able to learn about technology. In the future she hopes that God will help lead her children down the correct path and that He will bless her with the ability to provide for her children what they need. She tanks you all for your support.

In this group: Maria , Dilcia, Rosa , Felicia, Altagracia, Leonecia, Denny , Mirian, Firencia, Juana
