Rosa De Saron #3, 4, 5 Group's story

Fanis is the group coordinator for Banco de Esperanza (Bank of Hope) Rosa de Saron. Her story is representative of the others in her group and more generally of Esperanza's Dominican and Haitian clients. Fanis lives in Puerto Plata with her husband and five children (ages 19, 15, 13, 7 and 4). Fanis' community is located in a rural area near the northern shore of the Dominican Republic. The community does not have access to potable drinking water and has unreliable access to electricity.

Fanis sells food and clothing items to those in her community and the surrounding communities. She plans to use this loan to purchase more merchandise to sell. This will be her fourth loan with Esperanza. She has successfully paid back her previous three loans. Fanis wants to continue to grow her business so that some day she can have her own store. She has been able to improve the quality of life for her family as her business as grown, and she hopes to continue to improve her living conditions. She thanks you for your support and for helping her achieve her goals!

In this group: Fanis, Francisco, Patricia, Adrien, Andres, Minouche, Cleona, Marie, Wislene, Moliene, Midia, Mimose, Angeka, Maritza, Alide
