Trabajando Para La Manana Group's story

Patricia is the coordinator of her group Trabajando para L. Mañana (Working for Tomorrow), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) generally. Her group is located in the Samana peninsuL., a lush rugged area, with a nascent tourism industry, 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 two children.

Patricia is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza and she is excited to have access to capital and low interest rates. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing by purchasing, skirts, pants, blouses and underwear in the main market in the Capital and then bringing it back to sell in her community. She will use the profits to invest in her children by purchasing them food, school supplies, as well as a computer to learn on. Additionally, she would like to go to university herself and to move her business into its own location rather then selling in the street as she currently does. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Patricia , Maricela, Laueano, Gervacia, Antonia, Basilia, Juan, Denia, Bibian, Rafael
