A loan of $700 helped a member to buy more charcoal, gasoline, and boots to sell.


Esperando En Dios 2 Group's story

Jaqueline is the coordinator of her group Eseperando en Dios (Hoping with God), and her story is representative of other in her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients overall, many of whom have recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti. Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding El-Seibo, a poor agricultural area where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long term partner and their child.

Jaqueline is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having repaid her previous loans which she successfully used to grow her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing more gasoline, charcoal, and boots to sell. This is a good business as there is no gas station in her area, thus she provides a much-needed service. She will use the additional profits to purchase school supplies for her children and to make home improvements. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Jaqueline, Maria, Malita, Yilen, Alexis
