La Esperanza 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Rosa is one of the members of her group, La Esperanza 2, 3 & 4 (Hope). She lives in the city of La Romana, where the sugar cane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. Rosa has three children two of whom live together with her and her long-term partner in one of the rural areas surrounding this tourist city. Most of this sugar town (batey)'s population are Haitians who emigrated and settled in to work in the sugar cane industry.

Rosa has been running her business for three years. She sells miscellaneous products like clothes, bread and gasoline. She sells them in her home located on the main road in the town, where many people pass by and buy her products. She started her business with some capital she saved by working in the city.

Her most difficult challenges are to buy her house in the city, and to have an improved business. She wants to be able to send her children to attend university. Thank you for your support!

In this group: Rosa, Saintemene, Florinda, Maria, Danula, Violeta, Altagracia, Carmen, Josefa, Amado, Alexander*, Yany, Elena*, Rosa, Regina
