La Buena Fe , 2 & 3 Group's story

Yusleny is the coordinator of her group, L. Buena Fe (The good faith). Her story is representative of both her group members and Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican Republic clients more generally. Her group is based in the areas surrounding L. Romana, a city where the economy is based around the sugarcane harvest and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable at best. Here she makes her home with her husband and child. Yusleny is excited about requesting her third loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her first two loans without incident. She plans to buy supplies of shoes, Avon beauty products (which are popular with her clients) and inexpensive jewelry. She plans to invest the profits from this activity in putting a new roof on her home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Yusleny, Anita, Ana, Antoinette, Luciana*, Dolia, Yamery, Miguelina, Rosa , Lidia, Victor, Guillermina, Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Juliana*
