El Renacer 2,3 &4 Group's story

Mireya is the coordinator of her group El Renacer (Reborn) 2, 3 & 4, and her group is located in the rural areas surrounding Hato Mayor, an area where the economy is centered around agriculture and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their three children.

Mireya is excited to be taking her fourth loan with Kiva partner, Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business. She sells ice cream, domestic ice, grocery items and underwear, all from her house and in the local school. She will use her loan to purchase some of each of these products. She will use the profits to re-invest in her business. Mireya says that her most difficult challenge is to have Dominican permission to live and work in the Dominican Republic. Like other Haitian citizens, she is working to get her Dominican residence. She started doing her business after she joined this group almost two years ago when she got her first loan. In the future she is dreaming of having her own house. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Mireya, Emilete, Marleni, Betonir, Leidy, Santa, Ramona*, Anny, Minolia, Lulusa, Yesimene, Mecilia, Leonida, Felito, Mami
