Renovacion Las Aguilas 1, 4 & 5 Group's story

Nieve is one of the members of the Renovacion las Aguilas 1, 4 & 5 Group which is formed by 15 micro business people. All members sells clothes, natural products, shoes, food, etc.

Nieve's family is formed by herself and four children, only one of which lives with her. She lives in the town of Santiago, the second largest in the country. The town's economy depends on agriculture, cattle raising and tobacco growing, among others. The town also has a large Dominican and Haitian immigrant population who live with very limited resources. They love to listen and dance to music in their free time.

Nieve is very excited to receive her fourth loan with Esperanza Internacional after having duly paid her previous loan and taken the step to grow her business. She has had her business for around 2 years. She started it when she took her first loan. Nieve plans to invest her new loan in her business. She sells new clothes to a varied clientele. She will use her income to renovate her home and to purchase some furniture she still misses.

In this group: Nieve, Alquimedes, Nidia, Almencia, Sonia, Candida, Maria, Celeste, Briselda, Daniel, Yessica*, Santa, Yocelin, Luberky, Daniel
