Con Cristo Se Puede 1 & 3 Group's story

Yeta is one of the members of her group named Con Cristo se puede 1, 2 & 3 (With Christ we can). She and her group are Haitians citizens who have moved or emigrated to the Dominican Republic. It is s a group made up of 15 businesswomen dedicated to running different businesses from their homes or door-to door. They are located in a rural area outside La Romana, between sugarcane fields. She lives with her long term partner and their 2 children in a simple structure.

Yeta has been operating her Comedor (a kind of local restaurant for lunch) for around 2 years. Many people from the community have lunch there. She started with her own savings. She is excited to receive her third loan through Esperanza. She joined the program just 3 months after she started her business and she said this helped her get a good start. She plans to use this loan to buy items such as rice, meat, seasoning, canned meals, vegetables, flour and cooking oil.

She will use her profits to save as much as possible because she would like to have her own house, either by buying it or building it. Her story is generally representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti.

In this group: Yeta, Celena, Sano, Michelina, Rosa, Nadina, Carolina, Besta*, Dignorah, Mercedes
