Nuevo Esfuerzo (G 4, 5) Group's story

Dilenia is the coordinator of her group Nuevo Esfuerzo (The New Effort), 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 SemA., a lush rugged peninsula with a blossoming tourism industry, where, nevertheless, running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here as a single mother, in a simple structure with her three children.

Dilenia is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her mobile variety sales business: to purchase clothes, sweets and other products for resale. She will use the profits to further expand and stabilize her business and to buy food, school supplies and medicine for her children. She hopes to better their future though her work. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Dilenia, Nieve, Yesenia, Yocasta, Sixta, Yennifer, Colon, Herminia , Kenia, Matilde
