Israel Group 1, 2 & 3's story

Olimpia is a member of the group Israel 1, 2 & 3, which is based in Los Alcarrizos, a dusty industrial town north of Santo Domingo. All the members of this group are engaged in different types of sales, such as clothing, shoes, groceries and many other items.

Olimpia, a single mother, makes her home in a simple structure with her three children. Her most difficult challenges are to educate her children, to provide for all their needs and to help her daughter recover from a hearing problem. She requires a loan to buy beauty products for her beauty salon and some natural products; she has a stall in her salon where she sells natural medicine. This is her first loan with Esperanza International.

She decided to take a loan because she is very interested in developing her businesses; also, Esperanza Internacional clients are mostly women, and she identifies with the program. She has had her business for over six years, having decided to start it after she learned about the beauty career. Olimpia will use the profits as savings.

Olimpia and her group are thankful for your support!

In this group: Olimpia, Aura, Walquiria, Katuza, Soraida, Mari, Silvia, Francisca, Yaned, Felicia, Livida, Yudelka, Jazmin, Rafaela, Antonia
