Union Con Esperanza 1,2,3 Group's story

Maireny is the coordinator of her group Union con Esperanza 1,2,3 (Union with Esperanza), and her story is not unlike others in her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican community, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti. Her group is located in Puerto Plata, a city on the north coast where the economy is based around tourism and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with her husband and two children.

Maireny is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing and accessories by traveling to the larger markets in Santiago to purchase her goods and sell them in her local market at a profit. She will use the profits to save towards buying a plot of land where she can construct her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Maireny, Juliana, Altagracia, Lourdes, Eusebia, Martina , Rufina, Antonio, Maria, Jefrica, Miguelina, Johanny, Elizabeth , Mercedes, Maribel
