Renovacion De Las Aguilas Group's story

Tania is the coordinator of her group Renovacion de Las Aguilas (Renewal of the Eagles), 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 urban slums surrounding Santiago, an area known for 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 three children.

Tania is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her ambulatory business selling clothing by purchasing men's, women's and children's clothing in the main markets in Santiago and then reselling them at a profit in her community . She will use the profits to save towards her goal of owning her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Tania, Ramona, Nidia, Almencia, Sonia, Nieve, Candida, Candida, Yudelki, Alquimedes
