Esperanza is the coordinator of the Cristo Salva Groups 1, 2 & 3. Her family is maD. up of four children and a husband. She said that her most difficult challenge is to proviD. a better future for her children by working hard selling in the street. She wants to improve her business and give her children the opportunity to live safe, tranquil lives with as little need as possible. Esperanza is very excited to receive her third loan through Esperanza International. She took her first loan almost two years ago, and she is very grateful for the opportunity her neighbors gave herself by inviting her to join the group. She has had her business for about 22 years. She started by selling silver jewelry such as rings and chains, using money that she had saved up. Esperanza is planning to invest by purchasing underwear and clothes for men, women and children. She will use her business profits to reinvest and expand her inventory by buying more products, planning to set a little miscellaneous store in her house. Esperanza dreams of having a beautiful house and a successful business. This group is composed of 15 Haitian's immigrants, located in the city of La Romana, where tourists and the sugar cane are the biggest industries. They all live in a rural area called Batey, surrounded by sugar cane fields.
