Mujeres Unidas 1 And 3 Group's story

Valentina is the group coordinator for Banco de Esperanza (Bank of Hope) Mujeres Unidas (United Women). Her story is representative of the others in her group and more generally of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients. Valentina and her five children live in Hato Mayor, a rural area in the Dominican Republic. Valentina is an excellent Esperanza client and has successfully repaid seven loans. With this loan, her eighth, she plans to buy fruit to sell in her community. Specifically, she will purchase oranges, plantains and bananas. Using the proceeds from her business, Valentina has been able to purchase clothes and food for her children. She has also repaired some parts of her house. Her dream for the future is to continue to educate her children and make improvements to her house. Valentina thanks you for your support in helping her achieve her goals!
