Con Dios Adelante Al Progreso 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Maritza is the coordinator of her group, 'Con Dios adelante al progreso' 1, 2 & 3 (Forward Progress with God), and her story is representative of both her group and Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients in general. Her group is located in the rural area of San Pedro de Macoris, surrounded by sugar cane fields, 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.

Maritza is excited to be seeking her 8th loan with Esperanza, four years after she started doing business and taking out loans. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business. She sells miscellaneous products such as cosmetics, beauty items, shoes, clothing, etc. She will use the profits to start rebuilding her house as a safer structure. Her most difficult challenge is living in her community. She likes to work and her future plan is attending church. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Martiza, Angela, Yesenia, Yesenia, Navilia, Melania, Marie, Ramon, Yomairis*, Santa, Santa, Paula, Miguel, Julia, Juana
