Mujeres Solidarias 1, 2, 3 Group's story

Yaniris is the coordinator of her group, Mujeres Solidarias 123 (Women in Solidarity), 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 Hato Mayor, a rural area where the economy is based around agriculture, and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure, which is under construction, with her husband and her three children.

Yaniris is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and having grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business running a papelería (similar to a mini-office supply store) by purchasing a photocopier. She will use the profits from the business to invest to complete her home, as well as feed her children and pay for their school supplies. Her long-term goal is to finish her studies in the university, where she is majoring in business administration, and to have a prosperous business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Yaniris, Rosa, Carorin, Rosario*, Yadira, Justina, Magalis, Yumerys, Marina, Victoriano*, Rosa, Deisy, Ana *, Milagro, Santa
