Asociacion Para Cristo Group's story

This group is located in the rural area surrounding San Pedro D. Macoris. They all live in a big rural community, surrounded by sugarcane fields. Maria is the coordinator of the group, Asociacion D. Cristo (Association of Christ). She is mother of two children and they live together in a modest home with her long term partner who is also her kids' father. Maria has had her business for around 3 years, starting with her first Esperanza loan. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business, and she will buy different products like cosmetics, accessories, hair and beauty products. Before she started doing this business she was working in a beauty salon, where she learned to become a beautician. She is also working door-to-door. With her business profits she is planning to again have her own beauty salon which she had in the past. Maria is excited to be taking her 5th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and she has grown her business. In the short term future, she will be saving to reopen her beauty salon. She thanks all of you for your support!
