Jesus Es Mi Piloto 3 & 4 Group's story

Nuris is the coordinator of her group, Jesus es mi Piloto (Jesus is my Pilot), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients. Her group is located in the slums surrounding Santiago, an agricultural center famous for tobacco and beef production where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure as single mother with her child.

Nuris is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza. She plans to use this loan to invest in a business selling clothing in her community. Her business plan calls for taking orders from her neighbors and then travelling to the capital city to purchase the items in bulk at a low price and then selling the items at a profit. She will use the profits to improve her quality of life and invest in her family. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Nuris, Margarita, Francilla, Estefany, Wisly, Violla, Francine, Sylvancia, Maria, Nissage
