Fe Y Amor 6,7 Group's story

Yanira is the coordinator of her group, Fe y Amor (Faith and Love), 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 La Romana, where the economy is based around the sugar cane harvest and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with her long term partner and two children.

Yanira is excited to be taking her sixth 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 running a general store by purchasing flour, cooking oil, charcoal and clothes to stock her store. She will use the profits to save towards her dream of owning her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Yanira, Istefa, Flor, Maria, Celia, Andrecia, Yolene*, Elza, Monette, Lamercie
