La Union 1 Group's story

Juana, 50, is the coordinator of her group La Union (The Union), 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 rural areas surrounding Hato Mayor, an agricultural area 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 two children.

Juana is excited to be taking her seventh loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing fabric to make the sheets, curtains and bed covers that she makes and sells. She will use the profits to repair her home as well as support her children in their college education. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Juana, Baldemiro, Margarita, Porfirio, Madelin
