Hondonados 1,2 Group's story

Santa is the coordinator of her group, Hondonados, 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). Santa’s group is located in Los Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial town north of the capital, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home there in a simple structure with her husband and their child. Santa is excited to be taking her third 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 selling beauty supplies to her neighbors. She will use the loan to purchase hair products, accessories, women's beauty products, combs and notebooks to stock her operation. Santa will use the profits to invest in her family by purchasing medicine for her grandchildren who are sick. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Idalia, Santa, Elia, Virtudes , Giselle, Patricia, Marienny, Hilaria, Angelica, Maria
