La Esperanza 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Elena is the coordinator of her group, La Esperanza 2, 3 & 4 (Hope). She lives in the city of La Romana, where the sugar cane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. This area, like nearly all impoverished areas of the Dominican Republic, suffers from unreliable running water (none of which is potable) and electricity. Elena has been working for 13 years. At the start, she was selling miscellaneous products. Now she is running a butcher shop where she sells all kind of meats and sausages. She also runs a vegetable stall in her community. She is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase meats. She lives with her six children and their father. Her most difficult challenges are to buy her house and to have an improved business with increased income to help with her family's expenses. Thank you for your support!.
