Bendicion De Mujeres Trabajadoras 1, 2 Group's story

Reyna is the coordinator of her group Bendicion de mujeres trabajadoras (Blessing of working women) 1, 2 . Her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti. Her group is located in San Pedro de Macoris, a city famous for baseball players and sugar cane industries. The main economic activity here is the Free trading zone, a cement factory, and others. This is an area where crime is rampant and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. Reyna makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their two children.

Reyna is excited to be taking her first loan with Esperanza. She has a food stand where she sells sandwiches, hot dogs, burgers and juices. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing meat, bread, juices, vegetables, sausages, etc. She will use the profits to reinvest in her business to make it grow. Her long-term goal is to save enough money to expand and improve her business. She wants to be a successful businesswoman and attend the university. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Reyna, Niulca, Luz, Odalis, Ydelina, Ventura, Yomaira, Priscila, Cristina, Yojana
