Nuevo Renacer 2 Group's story

Rosa is the coordinator of her group called Nuevo Renacer (New Rebirth), 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 generally. Her group is located in North Santo Domingo, among the slums that ring the city, where crime is prevalent and running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and child.

Rosa is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans without incident. She plans to use this loan to invest in her fantasia (fantasy), a business which caters to women, by purchasing combs, shampoo, conditioner and blouses to sell in her business. She will use the profits to save money and also on special treatments for her daughter who is mute and deaf, a large financial burden. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Rosa, Martires, Rosa, Rosa, Leocadia
