Mi Fortaleza En Cristo 3 Group's story

Argelia is the coordinator of her group 'Mi Fortaleza en Cristo' (My Fortress in Christ) 3, 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 Santiago, a large city known for its tobacco and beef production, 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 three children.

Argelia is excited to be taking out her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business making candy by purchasing sugar and coconut. She will use the profits to invest in saving towards her goal of owning a restaurant. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Argelia, Eddy , Carmen, Maria, Maria
