Dios Ante Todo 1 - 2 Group's story

Margo is the coordinator of her group, Dios Ante Todo 1, 2 (God first), located in a village where most of the citizen are Haitians. She lives in a modest home with one of her three children. With this effort, she can make extra income and help her long-term partner. In the meantime, she enjoys doing business.

Margo is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza. She has had her business for almost one year, after starting by selling a dozen pairs of jean pants she bought with her first loan. Now she has a clothing sales business and will start to sell coffee and breakfast in the mornings, so she is planning to use this loan to invest in her business by buying clothing, in different sizes for men and women, as well as coffee, sugar, sausages and other items to be able to offer some meals in the mornings. She will reinvest the profits in her business by purchasing more products and expanding her business with more options and new clients. She is dreaming to become someone with a very important business.

Margo represents her group and many Haitians who emigrated to the Dominican Republic to improve their lives. In this group are a sample of ten Haitian families fighting to overcome the Haiti crisis. Thanks to all of you for supporting this group.

In this group: Margo, Calmen, Lifeme, Ciana, Sadley, Marie Odette, Philomene, Cecila, Guirlande, Denia
