Si Se Puede! 1,2 Group's story

Carolina is the coordinator of her group Si se pueD.! (Yes We Can!) and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally — many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti. Her group is located in the slums north of Santo Domingo where crime is rampant and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She lives in a simple structure as a single mother with her child.

Carlonia is excited to be taking out her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in purchasing more rice, sugar, coffee, yuca, bananas and plantains. She will use the profits to invest in a computer for her child to learn on. Her dream is save towards turning her small stand into a large grocery store and have a vehicle to move merchandise with. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Carolina, Esperanza, Orilia, Mariel, Bernadette, Gloria, Marcelina, Maribel , Toedora, Maria
