Amistad 6 Group's story

Noemi is the coordinator of her group Amistad (Friendship), 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 the areas surrounding El-Seibo, an agricultural community where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with her husband and their child.

Noemi is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business, running a beauty salon, by purchasing shampoos, rinses, hair dyes and other hair products. She will use the profits to invest in her current home by refinishing the floors and in her children by purchasing a computer for their education. Her long term goal is to purchase her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Noemi, Altagracia, Juana, Florentina, Carmen
