Unidas Para Triunfar 1,2 Group's story

Benita is the coordinator of her group Unidas Para Triunfar (United to Triumph). Her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santiago, an area known for its tobacco production, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their two children.

Benita is excited to be taking her second 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 selling clothes. She will purchase large packets of used clothing that come from places like the Salvation Army in the United States. She will use the profits to invest in finishing her home. Her dream is to one day be able to travel the world with her family. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Benita , Santa , Inocencia, Augustina, Enma, Cleotilde, Daisy, Patria, Jesus, Zenona
