Mujeres Liberadas 1 Group's story

Tanya is the coordinator of her group Mujeres Liberadas (Liberated Women), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti) generally. Her group is located in Los Alcarrizos, an industrial town north of the capital where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable.

She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and their six children. She says that her most difficult challenge is to continue her efforts to reach and fulfill all her goals.

Tanya is excited to be taking third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan. She has had her business for 1 year, starting with her first loan with Esperanza, after having received an invitation to join a group. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling bed covers and pillows by purchasing more merchandise. She will use the profits to invest in her business and to save. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Tanya, Yecenia, Raquel, Bartola, Ana
