Alfa Y Omega 1,2 & 3 Group's story

Ana is the coordinator of her group Alfa y Omega (Alpha and Omega), 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 areas surrounding Santiago, the DR's second largest city, which is located in the Cibao valley and is famous for agricultural production. In this area, however, running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and 4 children.

Ana is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business, selling a variety of items that she has identified a market for, including inexpensive jewelry, shoes, and perfumes. She will use the profits to invest in her family and improving her home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Ana, Jose, Deyanira, Yackelin, Digna, Buenaventura, Milagros, Maria, Lidia, Maria, Dionisia, Jose, Yaniris, Maria, Cruz
