Nuevo Progreso 3 & 4 Group's story

Robertina is the coordinator of her group, Nuevo Progreso (New Progress) 3 & 4, and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti).
Robertina’s group is located in the lush, rugged Samana peninsuL., an area with a nascent tourism industry. Robertina makes her home here in a simple structure with her only child. Her group is composed of ten business people, dedicated to different businesses such as selling clothes, shoes, cosmetics and running grocery stores, beauty salons, etc.
Robertina runs a small cafeteria, which sells all kind of snacks. She is excited to be taking her tenth loan with Kiva partner, Esperanza, after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She started to do business five years ago, when she took her first loan with Esperanza. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying sweets, snack, juices, etc.
Robertina will use the profits to invest in new items and increase her inventory. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Robertina, Priseida, Norma, Carmen, Pura, Yuderqui, Ramona, Wendy, Joany, Jose
