Dios Proveera 1, 2 Group's story

Yovany is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling miscellaneous products. She will buy clothing, shoes, cosmetics and household products. She will use the profits to reinvest in her business. She wants to have a successful, big wholesale store. In the short term, she wants to have a locale for her business.

Yovany is a member of the group called Dios Proveera 1, 2 ("God Will ProviD."). Her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Dominican and Haitian clients generally, many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti. Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding L. Romana, where the economy is dominated by the sugarcane harvest and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their three children. She thanks you for your support.

In this group: Yovany, Elena, Sofia*, Francis, Helena, Francia*, Oxenmene, Nelly, Esmena, Yena
