Dios Es Mi Pastor 2, 3 & 9 Group's story

Ysemitha, 26, is a borrower who lives near San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic. She is the coordinator for her group, Dios es mi Pastor (God is my Shepherd), and her story is representative of the other borrowers in the group.

Ysemitha and the other borrowers in Dios es mi Pastor live in Boca Chica, a small town between San Pedro and Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic. Boca Chica has unreliable electricity at best, and it has no potable running water. It also suffers from the pollution of its two large neighbors. Ysemitha lives with her husband and two children, 3 years and 3 months old, in a small concrete home.

Ysemitha will use this loan to purchase new and used clothing to sell to her customers. She has successfully repaid three loans, and she is excited to be taking out her fourth. Ysemitha’s business is run through her home, which she currently rents. Her dream is to one day own her own house using the profits from her clothing sales. Thank you for lending to Ysemitha and the Dios es mi Pastor group!

In this group: Ysemitha, Claudette, Carina, Albide, Michelina, Susana, Marcelin, Adrenise, Rosana, Marie, Lucia, Nancy, Maria, Silvia, Violeta
