It is one of the poorest communities, where the majority of the inhabitants are Haitian immigrants who came to the Dominican Republic with the goal of improving the quality of their lives.

Juliane has a grocery stand which she operates from her house. It is a modest home that she shares with her 4 children and her long-term partner. Juliane has been living in the country for several years, ever since she emigrated to the Dominica. She is currently in receipt of her 8th loan with Esperanza (Kiva Field Partner). She has managed to repay and invest her previous loans to expand and increase her business.

Juliane plans on investing this loan in the purchase of snacks, juice, cookies, sweets, and other appetizers. One of her dreams is to buy or build a house. She plans to save her business benefits to make this dream come true. Juliane is thankful to all of you for your support.
