La Fe 3,4,5 Group's story

Rosaura is the coordinator of her group, La Fe (The Faith), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti).

Rosaura’s group is located in the Samana peninsula, a lush, rugged peninsula with a nascent tourism industry where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home there in a simple structure as a single mother with her eight children.

Rosaura is excited to be taking her seventh 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 selling clothes by purchasing skirts and pants to sell.

Rosaura will use the profits to purchase a computer for her children to learn on as well as construction materials to finish her home. She thanks you all for your support.

Although the photo shows some of the faces of more than 15 people this is because this loan was disbursed with a group of 20 people; one group, however, was not (completely) visible in the picture and are therefore excluded from the profile.

In this group: Rosaura, Yolanda, Dilcia, Altagracia, Ligia, Genara *, Percida, Juana, Valentina, Arilene, Albertina*, Ysabelita, Francisco, Bautina, Ambrocia*
