La Esperanza 1,2,3 Group's story

Biola is the coordinator of her group La Esperanza (The Hope), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana 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 two children.

Biola is excited to be taking this loan with Esperanza and she is excited at the opportunity to grow her business and have access to low cost capital. She plans to use this loan to invest in her clothing business by traveling to Santo Domingo to purchase blouses, sweaters, skirts and pants in the main market to sell at a profit in her community. Biola will use the profits to invest in her business and save towards being able to take larger loans and further invest in her business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Biola, Yolanda, Saintemene, Kiricis*, Memena, Elena, Violeta, Regina, Alexander, Yany*, Violeta, Rosa, Yedona*, Ramona, Rosa
