Fuente De Luz 1,2 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator of her group Fuente de Luz (Source of Light), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients (many of whom recently immigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti). Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding Hato Mayor, an agricultural area 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 two children.

Maria is excited to be receiving 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 of selling underwear by purchasing more merchandise in Santo Domingo, the capital, and then selling it in her community. She will use the profits to invest in her home by purchasing a new bed, as well as building a dining area. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Maria, Meibelly, Julia, Carmen, Nalis, Dominga, Teresa, Marcia, Reyna, Juan
