Unidos Para El Futuro Group's story

Yrene is the coordinator of the "Unidos Para el Futuro" (United for the Future) group and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti . Her group is located in the urban slums north of the capital where crime is rampant, running water is not potable, and electricity is unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their three children. Yrene is excited to be taking her third loan from Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business. Yrene sells underwear and cosmetics. She will use her loan to buy bras, panties and briefs as well as creams and makeup to sell. She will use the profits to finish building her home and to save to buy a vehicle. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Yrene, Gertrudis, Arelis, Elena, Lourdes, Margarita, Luz , Enrique , Rosita, Felicia, Maria, Jacinta*, Ysabel, Altagracia, Alicia
