Embajadores 1 & 2 Group's story

Odania is the coordinator of her group, Embajadores 1 & 2 ("Ambassadors"). The group is made up of Haitian members, all of them emigrated from Haiti during different periods. Odania's story is representative of both her group and Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients in general. Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy, and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner and three children.

Odania is excited to be seeking her seventh loan with Esperanza. Notably, she 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 clothes, so the loan will be used to purchase jeans, shirts, skills, underwear and other things for kids, women and men. She will invest the profits from her business by buying more merchandise and she will save some money for her future plans. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Odania, Maria, Juan, Margarita, Ana, Mayleny, Candida, Esperanza, Mirlande, Roseleine
