Mujeres Capacitadas 4 Group's story

Marisol is one of the members of the group "Mujeres Capacitadas" 4 (Capable Women), which is comprised of five micro-business people and her story is representative both of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally, many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti. All the members sell clothes, natural products, shoes, food, etc.

Marisol's family is formed by her long-term partner and three children. Her group is located in Puerto Plata, a northern port town whose economy is dependent on tourism and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. The town also has a large Dominican and Haitian immigrant population who live with very limited resources.

Marisol is very excited to receive her third loan with Esperanza Internacional. She plans to invest her new loan in her business. She sells silver jewelry. She will use her business income to save. She is dreaming of having an improved business with high income. Marisol enjoys doing business and sharing with friends. Thank you so much for supporting this loan.

In this group: Marisol, Santo, Rosalba, Eliana, Carmen
