El Tesoro 4, 5 & 6 Group's story

Yaquelin is the coordinator of El Tesoro 4, 5 & 6 (The treasure), a group maD. up of 15 micro-entrepreneurs. This group was founded almost four years ago, and the majority of the initiating members have received loans. The group is located in the city of La Romana, a rural area of the country dedicated to the sugar cane harvest and a luxury tourism.

Yaquelin lives with her long-term partner and three children, and operates a colmado, a grocery store, run in a neighborhood whose people buy their daily meals. She will use this loan to purchase goods such as rice, sugar, beans, cooking oil, and canned food to increase her store's inventory. She is excited to receive her sixth loan with Esperanza and her group, as with each loan she has been able to improve her business, making it possible for her to proviD. for her family's needs and save to build her house in the future. She enjoys working in her little store and her dream is to have a big grocery store or a supermarket.

Yaquelin says that her most difficult challenges are to continue improving her business and helping to proviD. for her children's education. "Obtaining an education in The Bateyes is very difficult, because students need to go to the nearest town to get a better education, and for most it means more expenses," Yaquelin said. She thanks all of you for your support of her business and her group.

In this group: Yaquelin, Dania, Casimena, Yorgina, Elena, Mercedes, Ramona, Marisol, Maximina*, Antonia, Sina*, Lidiana, Veronica, Fabiola, Maria
