A loan of $3,150 helped a member rice, sugar, flour, soda and beans to sell in her cornerstore.

Unidos Venceremos Group's story

Ninita is the coordinator of her group Unidos Venceremos (United we will overcome), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in an agricultural community based around the sugarcane industry on the outskirts of La Romana, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long term partner and their four children.

Ninita is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans without problems. She plans to use this loan to invest in her "colmado" (a small corner store which sells the basic necessities) by purchasing rice, beans, sugar and soda to sell to her clients. She will use the profits to continue investing in her business, with the goal of creating a larger more sustainable business that will provide a steady stream of income for her family. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Ninita, Cruz, Vilten, Bertha, Dolsi, Paricia, Maria, Cimione, Jeanette, Dieulane
