Amistad 6 Group's story

Carmen is the coordinator of her group, Amistad 6 (Friendship), and her story is representative of both her group and Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients in general. Her group is located in El Seybo, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband and four children.

Carmen is excited to be seeking her second loan with Esperanza. Notably, she has already successfully repaid her previous loan which enabled her to expand her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business. Specifically, she sells underwear, so the loan will be used to purchase them for kids and women. She will invest the profits in completing her home. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Carmen, Altagracia, Juana, Ramon, Florentina
