Genesis 4 Group's story

Phinette is the coordinator of her group, Genesis 4. She makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their 6 children.

Phinette is excited to be taking her 11th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and developed her business. She has had her business for around 5 years, starting with the first loan she received from Esperanza. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing pounds of meat, like beef, pork, and chicken. She will continue using her business profits to save and make her dream of going back to Haiti come true. She hopes to have enough money to have a better life there.

Her group is located in El Seybo, an agricultural and rural city. This area, like nearly all impoverished areas of the Dominican Republic, suffers from unreliable running water (none of which is potable) and electricity.

In this group: Phinette, Maria, Berta, Margarita, Altagracia
