Jehova Es Mi Protector 2&3 Group's story

Roselie is the coordinator of her group, Jehova es mi Protector (God is my protector), 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 Santiago, an area renown for its production of tobacco and beef, 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 child. Roselie is excited to be taking her second loan from Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling used clothing by buying a large package of used clothing that come from places like the Salvation Army. She will use the profits to invest in her home, as she would like to add a room for her child. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Roselie, Maitlein, Nanette, Leonita , Serilia, Joseph, Gurlene*, Lucienne, Jalqueline, Elena
