Prosperidad Y Esperanza 1,2 Group's story

Luz is the coordinator of her group Prosperidad y Esperanza (Prosperity and Hope), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti). Her group is located in the urban areas surrounding Santiago 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.

Luz is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza and is excited to access capital at low interest rates. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling sweets by purchasing the necessary ingredients including sugar, coconut, milk and potatoes. She will use the profits to save towards her long term goal of opening a restaurant. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Luz, Insolina, Luz , Carlos, Leonalda, Lucrecia, Maria, Mirian, Modesto , Rosa
