Ena's story

Ena is a 51 year old enterprising Haitian immigrant. She came to the Dominican Republic 15 years ago searching for a better quality of living, fleeing the extreme poverty of her native land Haiti. Ena is known as a woman who believes in God. She is responsible and helpful. She resides in La Romana province with her life companion Mosine and her two children.

Ena has excelled as a good entrepreneur in the Dominican Republic. She has operated a business selling new and used clothing for over 14 years. The loan she is requesting will be used for the construction of her house. For Ena it is a great achievement to be able to build a house and stop paying rent. With your support Ena can buy construction material for her house: 385 cinder blocks, 13 bags of cement, 24 re-bar, 1 toilet, 30 pounds of wire, sand, limestone, 7 pipes, etc. Her dream is for her business to continue to grow and to complete her house.

Many thanks for supporting Ena in constructing her own house.
