Caminando Con Jesus 3 & 4 Group's story

Kirsy is the coordinator of her group Caminando con Jesus 3 & 4 (Walking with Jesus). She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and three children. She says that her most difficult challenge is to build her house. In the meantime, she plans to continue enjoying to watch television.

Kirsy is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza. She has had her business for six months, starting with her husband's help. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business of selling all kinds of clothes and different home-decoration items. She will use the profits to invest in her business and to buy a couch.

This Esperanza associate began with us because she wants to improve her business. 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. Her group is located in Santiago, an area famous for tobacco and beef production, and the second biggest city in the Dominican Republic. This area, like nearly all impoverished areas of the Dominican Republic, suffers from unreliable running water (none of which is potable) and electricity.

In this group: Kirsy, Alison, Orfelina, Angelica, Juana , Mercedes, Gilsi, Antonia, Arine, Leonicia
