Saray Y Responsabilidad 1 & 3 Group's story

Carina is a 37-year-old borrower who lives in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic. Carina is the coordinator for her group, Saray y Responsabilidad 1 & 3 and her story is representative of the other borrowers in the group.

Carina lives in La Habana, a rural neighborhood in the city of San Pedro. She lives with her only child and she is a single mother. She runs a small accessories sales business from her home and by walking into her community. She will use this loan to increase her inventory. She started her business after she took her first loan in Esperanza. Now she is receiving 6th loan.

San Pedro is a small city with many amenities. Unfortunately, there are several neighborhoods which lack access to those amenities. Most of the city has running water, somewhat reliable electricity, and decent waste management. Despite the difficulties in her community, Carina is happy that she has access to loans which have given her more business in her neighborhood. With the extra profits from her business, she is able to improve her business; she also hopes to save enough to have her own house and send her child to the university. Thank you for your loan to Carina and the Saray y Responsabilidad group!

In this group: Carina, Elsa, Esther, Yudelka, Adelaida, Lorenza, Ileana, Juan, Mayra, Brigida
