Mujeres Luchadoras 1 Group's story

Ana is the coordinator of her group, Mujeres Luchadores (Fighting Women), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santiago, a large city known for its tobacco production, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with husband and two children.

Ana is excited to be taking her fourth loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her nail salon business by purchasing more acrylic nails, as well as women's underwear and inexpensive jewelry to sell to her clients. She will use the profits to invest in a vehicle to make her life easier, as well as saving toward her long term goal of owning her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Ana, Luz, Confesora, Miguelina, Ana
