Grupo Brisas 3, 4, 5 & 6 Group's story

Adriana is one of the members of the group Brisas 3, 4, 5 & 6 (Breezes). She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and two of their three children. She says that her most difficult challenge was to build her house and she did it already, with God's will. In the meantime, she plans to continue enjoying to work because by doing that, she can help her children.

Adriana is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza. She has had her business for around three years, starting first by looking for clients who wanted to buy meats on request and then she obtained the products. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business of meat sales by buying 150 pounds of pork and beef. She will use the profits to save and to invest in her business for now.

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 the urban slums surrounding Santo Domingo. 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: Adriana, Maria, Felicia, Grecia, Elizabeth, Alejandrina, Xiomara, Milagros, Isayra, Sonia, Patiurka, Salustiana, Juana, Adelaida, Isabel, Paula, Irene, Miriam, Berta, Santa
