Unidas Para Triunfar 5 Group's story

Fany is the coordinator of her group Unidas para Triunfar 5 (Unite to Triumph). Her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti, generally. Her group is located in Santiago, an area famous for tobacco and beef production. It's the second biggest city in Dominican Republic, 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.

Fany is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza. She will expand her jewelry business into different neighborhoods and take the jewelry into town to customers at their jobs. She plans to use this loan to invest in silver jewelry, like rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. She will save the profits to open a beauty salon with her next loans. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Fany, Yini, Ramona, Maria, Deisy
