Nuevo Porvernir 1, 2, 3 Group's story

Angelita is the coordinator of her group, Nuevo Porvenir (New Future), 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 San Pedro D. Macoris, a city famous for baseball players and sugar cane industries. The main economic activity is in Free Trading Zone, a cement factory, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home there in a simple structure with her two children.

Angelita is excited to be taking her 4th 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. She sells clothes and shoes in a Fantasia: a variety store that caters to women. She will use the profits to improve her home and invest in her business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Angelita, Yissel, Lidia, Cadido, Germania, Alina, Santa, Cruza, Altagracia, Juan, Pedro, Ramona*, Carmen, Ana, Dina
