Batey Nuevo 3 Group's story

Nelson is the coordinator of his group Batey Nuevo 3 (New Batey), and his story is representative of his group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti. His group is located in the rural area surrounding El Seibo, an agricultural area, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. He makes his home here in a simple structure with his wife and three children. Nelson is excited to be taking his eighth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid his previous loan and grown his business. He plans to use this loan to invest in his business by buying goats and selling the meat in his butcher shop. He will use the profits to improve his business and become a successful farmer. He thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Nelson, Maria, Many, Glorieuse, Cristino
