Plan De Lucha 4 Group's story

Hilaria is the coordinator of her group, Plan de Lucha (Plan to Fight!), 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 the rural areas surrounding Hato Mayor, where the economy is based primarily around agriculture, and 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 five children.

Hilaria is excited to be taking her seventh loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and growing her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business running a colmado, or corner store, by purchasing the basics products that her clients expect to find such as rice, beans, cooking oil and powdered milk. She will use the profits to invest in her children's education and continuing to grow her business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Hilaria, Floridaliza, Juana, Jesus, Moreno
