Los Lirios 1, 2 Group's story

Yojane is the coordinator of her group L. lirios 1, 2 (the lilies), and her story is representative both 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 L. Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial town 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 three children.

Yojane is excited both to take her fifth loan with Esperanza and to grow her business like her friends who are already participating in Esperanza. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing and miscellaneous products by purchasing more merchandise. She will use the profits and savings to invest in her house by building a concrete roof. Prior to starting the business, it was really difficult to save or to buy things for her house and family. Now she has the opportunity to support some of those needs.

In this group: Yojane, Yesenia, Yolanda, Isabel, Mirian, Divina, Maricela, Miguel, Mineli, Ramirez
