Cristo La Solucion 1,2,3 Group's story

Santiago is the coordinator of his group Cristo La Solucion (Christ is the Solution), and his story is representative of his group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. His group is located in La Romana, an area economically dominated by the sugarcane harvest where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. He makes his home here in a simple structure with his wife and three children.

Santiago is excited to be taking his fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid his previous loan and grown his business. He plans to use this loan to invest in his business selling medication by purchasing more merchandise to sell in his small pharmacy. He will use the profits to cover the basic needs of his family as well as save towards purchasing a vehicle for the pharmacy so that he can make deliveries and retrieve orders. He thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Santiago, Miledis, Mirtha, Maria, Seranie, Sonia, Yeny*, Dianita, Tereza, Christine*, Olga, Emile, Elena, Minerva, Josefina
