La Cosecha 2 Group's story

Delsa is a member of “La Cosecha 2” (The Harvest), a group which is located in Los Alcarrizos in the north of the city of Santo Domingo. It is a very industrialized place with a large population which depends on the businesses and economy of the main city. As in many other cities, there is a scarcity of potable water and electricity, and a population of Dominicans and Haitian emigrants. Delsa works selling medicine in a small drugstore and oil for motor vehicles in a stall. Both are located in her house.

Delsa is a married woman with 3 children. She devotes her time to raising her children while she works and attends to all her family needs. She would like to have a wholesale store, being able to provide a better life to her family and to give opportunity to others.

Delsa is very excited to be receiving her 4th loan from Esperanza Internacional after having satisfactorily repaid her previous loans and having taken a step further in growing her business. She has had her business 6 years. She is planning to invest her new loan in the purchase of medicine for her drugstore and lubricants for motor vehicles. She is planning to use her profits to invest in her business, thereby enabling herself to have more and better merchandise. Her dream is to be able to build a second floor on her house.

In this group: Delsa, Ana, Ramona, Francisca, Yohana
