Udiedi 1,2,3 Group's story

Elena lives in Santo Domingo, the crowded capital of the Dominican Republic, where traffic jams and intense heat are more reliable than electricity and running water. She is the group coordinator of her group "Udiedi" and is wanting to take out her second loan through Esperanza International.


Elena will be using this loan to buy a pack of tennis shoes to sell to her customers. Selling tennis shoes results in a larger profit than selling clothing, but requires more initial capital to buy them, so she is very thankful for this loan. She is thankful to Esperanza for having low and manageable repayments which has allowed her to reinvest more money into her business. She looks forward to taking out more loans in the future to help her business grow and to support her house and family financially. Thank you for your help!
