Cristo Es La Esperanza 1 & 2 Group's story

Martires is the coordinator of her group, Cristo es la esperanza 1 & 2 (Christ is the hope). All the members of this group are Haitians and they are located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and three children. She says that her most difficult challenge is to recover the payment when she gives credit to her clients.

Martires is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza. She has had her business for around 16 years, starting with a small amount of capital that she saved. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business to buy some sugar, rice, vegetables, meat, cooking oil, plantain, flour, etc. She operates a Colmado, a place where you can find all the ingredients to make your daily food. Normally those colmados are in the same neighborhood, just a short walk from any home. With her business profits she has been improving her business

In this group: Martires, Lenaise, Violeta, Lesuamena, Manice, Maria, Isiane, Edita, Diola, Josefa
