Prosperidad 1 Group's story

C. is the coordinator of her group Prosperidad (Prosperity), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in the Samana peninsula, a lush, rugged isthmus with a nascent tourism industry, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and three children.

C. is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing, beauty products, perfumes and accessories, by purchasing more merchandise. She will use the profits to save toward her dream of one day opening a restaurant. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Cabrera , Modesto , Ramonita, Lidia, Luz , Juana, Maria, Nury, Guillermina, Carmen
