Grupo Brisas 3, 4, 5 & 6 Group's story

PauL. belongs to the “Grupo Brisas 3, 4, 5 & 6” (Breezes Group). The group is comprised of 20 members. Each one of them works day to day at their business activities. They do this in an area with scant resources in the city of Santo Domingo. The group is located to the north of the city. They mostly sell clothes, footwear, accessories, cosmetics, food, and other miscellaneous products.

PauL.’s family is maD. up of her five children and their parents. This young mother has been very dedicated to her work - it is one of her most favorite things to do - and to attending church. She does this to help her children be able to get ahead, become professionals, get an education, and to proviD. for their family's needs, by helping to bring extra incoming to home. Her most difficult challenge is to have their own home.

PauL.’s business is selling bacon, beef, chicken and pork. She prepares the meat in order to sell for a better price. Also, she makes local sausages with these different meats. She has been in this business for four years. She tells us that she started thanks to motivation from her aunt, who was doing the same, and she introduced PauL. to her meat supplier and recommended her for a credit client. Then, PauL. was able to apply for loans from Esperanza, and she was able to invest almost two years ago. PauL. has now had three loans with Esperanza Internacional. She is very grateful because she has been able to move forward, and she has been able to invest in her business. She will use this new loan to buy several pounds of different meats.

This group has two photos because there were too many to be in just one, and we try to have the most visible faces by having two photos
