A loan of $1,450 helped a member to purchase sandals to sell.


Arturo's Group's story

Arturo is the coordinator of his group Unidos Venceremos (United We Will Succeed), and his story is representative of his group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. His group is located in La Romana, a town famous for sugarcane and tourism, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. He makes his home here in a simple structure with his wife and two children.

Arturo is excited to be taking his fourth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid his previous loans and grown his business. He plans to use this loan to invest in his business selling sandals on the beach by purchasing more merchandise to sell. He will use the profits to invest in his home by purchasing a computer for his children to learn on as well as backpacks and notebooks for school for his children. He thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Arturo, Guerda, Almina, Ermita, Chiriciana
