Mujeres Bendecidas 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Dolores is the coordinator of her group, 'Mujeres Bendecidas' 1, 2 & 3 (Women Blessed), and her story is representative of both her group and Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients in general. Her group is located in one of the poorest area around Santo Domingo city, 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 their two children. Dolores is excited to be seeking her first loan with Esperanza. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business. She operates a fried food stall at her home, and she will invest in her business by buying a gas tank, six chairs and a table. She sells especially breakfast and dinner. She will use the profits to save and in the short term, she plans to buy a plot of land to start building her house. Her most difficult challenge has been studying. She likes to work and her future plan is to have her own house. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Dolores, Rosa, Bartolina, Agela, Leoncia, Miriam, Sagraria, Yaneisis, Jacqueline, Maria, Ana, Ramona, Gleny, Susana, Brigida
