Azucena 1 Group's story

Deysi is the coordinator of her group Azucena, 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 Los Alcarrizzos, a dusty industrial area north of the capital, 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 five children.

Deysi is excited to be taking her seventh 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, selling clothing, by purchasing underwear, mosquito nets, pants, blouses and skirts in the main market in Santo Domingo and then selling it in her community at a profit. She will use the profits to proviD. the daily needs for her large family and save for her children's education. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Daysi, Luz, Altagracia, Patria
