A loan of $2,550 helped a member to buy pants, sheets and children's clothing to sell.


Ebenezer 1,2 Group's story

Fauna plans to use this loan to invest in her ambulatory business selling clothing by purchasing pants, sheets and children's clothing. 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) generally. Her group is located in the urban slums 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 five children.

Fauna is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She will use the profits to invest in her home by purchasing a fan as well as saving towards growing her business. Fauna is the coordinator of her group, "Ebenezer". She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Fauna, Melita, Mimose, Yolette, Edline , Cesar , Dorcillien, Jertha, Yolene, Myrlande
