Las Escogidas 4 Group's story

Angeli is the coordinator of her group, Las Escogidas 4, 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 Macorís, surrounded by sugar cane fields where there is no potable running water and electricity is unreliable. She makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their two children.

Angeli is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza, almost three 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 her 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 plans include attending church. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Angeli, Marta, Ortida, Mari, Anita
