Mujeres Con Metas Y Sueños 1 &2 Group's story

Amada is the coordinator of her group Mujeres con Sueños y Metas (Women with Dreams and Goals), and her story is representational of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients in general. Her group is located in the slums, north of the capital, Santo Domingo, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure as a single mother with her four children.

Amada is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling bacon and Longaniza (a pork sausage popular in the DR) by purchasing 180lbs of meat. She will use the profits to invest in a freezer, which will serve a dual purpose of supporting her business as well as providing cold storage for her family. Her long-term goal is to save enough money to have a large comfortable home and to send her kids to university. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Amada , Cipriana, Casilda, Paulina, Augustina, Maura, Santa, Blasina, Silvia, Ramona
