Unidos Para Avanzar 1 & 2 Group's story

Lidia lives in Santo Domingo, in one of the poorest communities surrounding the main city of the Dominican Republic. Lidia and her group of 10 members are taking loans for their businesses. This group is named Unidos para Avanzar 1 & 2 ("Unite to Win").

Lidia requires a loan to buy hot dog sausages, bread, mayonnaise, mustard, catsup and bottles of water. She runs a small business where she sells big bottles of water to her neighbors. Also, at night she sells hot dogs. She has been doing the water business for around 6 years.

This is Lidia's second loan with Esperanza International. She is a single mother of three children. Her most difficult challenges are to help her children become professionals and to improve her business.

She says that her favorite thing is to eat. Lidia and her group are thankful for your support!

In this group: Lidia, Juliana, Jeanine, Evelin, Elizabeth, Guadalupe, Victoria, Marie, Maria, Alejandrina
