Todos Juntos Podemos Group's story

Marie is the coordinator of her group "Todos juntos podemos", which means "All together we can", 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 de Macoris, a city famous for baseball players and sugar cane industries. There is a free trading zone, a cement factory, and other economic activities, while running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her two children. Marie is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business to buy more clothes to sell. She will use the profits to build her house out of concrete blocks. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Marie, Altagracia, Mariana, Lurdes, Milena
