Alabanza De Dios Grupo 1, Grupo 2 Group's story

Charles plans to use this loan to invest in his small variety products store by moving it to a location better for his sales – the central market. His group is located in Santiago, the center of the country. It is an area known for tobacco production, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. He makes his home here in a simple structure, typical of the area. Charles is excited to be taking his second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid his previous loan and grown his business. He will use the profits to improve living conditions for himself and his family. He thanks you all for your support. Charles is the coordinator of his group" Alabanza de Dios" (Blessing of God, Groups 1, 2) and his story is representative of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally, many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti.

In this group: Charles, Roseline, Margarette, Hipolita, Denise, Rosiane, Gerald , Malia, Cherline, Aliette
