La Fe Group's story

Adriana is the coordinator of her group, La Fe (The Faith), 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.

Adriana’s group is located in El-Seybo, an agricultural area where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her longtime partner and their two children.

Adriana is excited to be taking her fourth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and built her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business with a mobile stand that sells the essentials such as chicken, rice, oil and vegetables which she will purchase with this loan.

Adriana will use the profits to invest in her home by refinishing the floor and purchasing food for her family. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Adriana, Magalis, Altagracia, Juana, Andrea
