Fe Y Amor 2 & 5 Group's story

Altagracia is the coordinator of Fe y Amor 2 & 5 (Faith and Love). This group is made up of ten micro-entrepreneur women, and it is located in the city of La Romana, a rural area of the country dedicated to the harvest of sugar cane, in a batey founded for sugar cane workers, especially for Haitians. Altagracia lives with her long-term partner and her six children. She says that her most important challenge is to have a house, and stop paying rent, and her most favorite thing to do is to eat; she loves to eat. She is running a miscellaneous sales business where she sells chicken, charcoal, and clothes. She has a small stand by her house where she sells the chicken and the charcoal, especially in the morning, and in the afternoon she sells the clothes by walking in her and other communities. With this loan, she is planning to buy many pounds of chicken, bags of charcoal, and different clothing. She is excited to receive her third loan with Esperanza. She has been part of this group for almost a year, and with each loan she has been able to improve her business. With her business profits, she will reinvest in her business and save. Altagracia thanks all of you for your support of her business and her group.

In this group: Altagracia, Ana, Cherline, Jovanny, Luciana, Enelcida*, Francia, Alicia, Jaquelin, Milagros
