Cristo Es La Esperanza 3, 5 & 5 Group's story

Yolanda is the coordinator of Cristo es la Esperanza 3, 4 & 5 (Christ is the hope). She lives with her long-term partner and their four children in a simple structure, located in a rural community in the city of La Romana. Specifically, the community is a batey (company town) founded for sugar cane workers where she, her family and the other 14 micro-entrepreneur women in this group reside.

Yolanda says that her most important challenge is to have a house in the main city and to raise, educate and support her children in all they may need. She operates a colmado, a place where you can find all the ingredients to make your daily food. Normally colmados are in the same neighborhood, just a short walk from any home. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business to buy sugar, rice, vegetables, canned food, cooking oil, flour, etc.

Part of this group for almost a year, Yolanda is excited to receive her third loan with Esperanza, each one helping her to improve her business. With her profits, she will reinvest in her business and save. Yolanda thanks all of you for your support of her business and her group.

In this group: Yolanda, Yemena, Ana, Rosa, Yasmina, Gerta, Samantha, Matilde, Leona*, Anacelia, Alexis, Yolanda, Maria, Minurca, Susana
