Amor Y Esperanza 1 & 2 Group's story

Yolanda is the coordinator of her group, Amor y Esperanza (Love and Hope), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti). Her group is located in the slums surrounding Santo Domingo where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and five children. Yolanda is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her first loan. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling used children's clothing by buying clothing in bulk at a good price. She will use the profits to improve her house with the dream of continuing to grow her business and to provide a good life for her family in a good house. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Yolanda, Rosela, Siliene, Nairobis, Fidelina, Soloida, Selena, Maria , Ana, Odil
