Embajadores 5 Group's story

Adamilka is the coordinator of her group Embajadores 5 (ambassadors 5). She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and 3 children. She says that her most difficult challenge is to give credit to her clients. In the meantime, she plans to continue enjoying sharing with her family and friends.

Adamilka is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She has had her business for 6 months, starting with her first loan. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying toys and women´s accessories. She will use the profits invest in her business and to give her children a good Christmas time.

This Esperanza associate began with us because she wants to make a business and increase their home income, and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominates the economy. 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: Adamilka, Michelina, Ludin, Violaine, Amelia
