She is a member of the “Mujeres Progresando 1 y 2” (Women Progressing 1 & 2) group which has 10 members and is led by Ysabel. They live in the city of Samana, a city known for its developing tourism and for being a special destination due to eco-tourism with many natural attractions, but which at the same time still has many needs and communities with very few resources and few means of support. Ysabel and her group, thanks to the loans, have been able to take a step towards improving their own, their families’ and their community’s lives. She thanks you for your help.
