Tulipanes 1,2 Group's story

Georgina is the coordinator of her group Tulipanes (Tulips), 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 Los Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial town 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 two children.

Georgina is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza and she is excited to grow her business like her friends who are already participating in Esperanza. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling jewelry and shoes by purchasing more merchandise. She will use the profits to invest in her children's education and in growing her business.

In this group: Georgina, Altagracia, Maria, Tamis, Claribel, Santa, Juana, Rosmery, Mery, Matilde
