Mujeres Con Esperanza 1 & 2 Group's story

Secundina is the coordinator of her group, MuJ. Con Esperanza (Women with Hope), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti).

Secundina’s group is located in the areas surrounding Santiago, a large city known for its agricultural production of beef and tobacco, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her longterm partner and their child.

Secundina is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business repairing and building furniture by purchasing materials for building cabinets, bed bases and dressers.

Secundina will use the profits to further invest in her business by purchasing her own location for her business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Secundina, Alejandrina, Francisca, Nancy, Andrea, Yasmin, Mayra, Mariela, Simon, Ana
