Miramar Feminina 1,2 Group's story

Nery is the coordinator of her group Miramar Feminina, 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 lush, rugged Samana peninsula, an area with a nascent tourism industry 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 three children.

Nery is excited to be taK. her 10th 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 an ambulatory food stand in which she sells basic staples of the Dominican diet such as chicken, yuca, lentils, fish, and salad. Additionally, she will invest in a freezer to store her goods in her home. She will use the profits to purchase clothing and medicine for her children, investing in her education as well as the education of her children and saving towards finishing construction on her home. She thanks you all for your support.
