La Solucion 5 & 6 Group's story

Wanda is the coordinator of her group, L. Solucion (The Solution), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican Republic (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients in general. Her group is located in the Samana penninsuL., a lush mountainous area with a budding tourism industry. The running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable in this area. Wanda makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their child.

Wanda 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. She will be purchasing men's and women's shoes as well as pants and shirts. Her business model is to carry these items on her head and seek out her clients in the street. She has several regular clients but also makes one-time sales. She plans to use the profits to invest in her family and business by purchasing a "passoL." or scooter. This purchase will facilitate mobility. She will also purchase books and notebooks for her child. Her long-term goal is to own her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Wanda, Crimirda, Andrea, Matilde, Sira, Licila, Jhandy, Quisqueya, Valeria, Roxanna
