Caminando Con Jesus 1 Group's story

Ana is the coordinator of her group Caminando Con Jesus (Walking with Jesus), 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 Santiago, a large city known for its production of tobacco, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. Ana makes her home there in a simple structure with her long-term partner and three children.



Ana is excited to be taking her fourth loan with Esperanza after having repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business hawking clothing around her neighborhood by purchasing more merchandise. She will use the profits to save towards her goals of putting her business in its own locale and purchasing a vehicle to move her merchandise, developments that will make her life a lot simpler. Ana thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Ana , Marcerlina, Carmen, Yoselin, Colasa
