El Gran Esfuerzo 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Edicto is one of the members of the El gran esfuerzo ("the great effort") 1, 2 & 3 Group located in the city of Hato Mayor, a primarily agricultural region. It is one of the most rural cities. The population of this area is comprised of Dominicans and Haitian immigrants. This group is dedicated mostly to the door-to-door business, carrying their products by walking in different communities.

Edicto is a hardworking father of six children. He lives with two of them and their mother, and the rest of his children are living in their own home and some in Haiti. He tells us that his biggest challenge is to have his own house, and he is saving his business profits to start building it. He operates a clothing sales business, and with this loan he will invest by purchasing products like pants, blouses, shirts, and underwear.

Edicto is very excited to receive his tenth loan through Esperanza Internacional, after having successfully repaid his previous loan. He has had his business for about six years. He started with the first loan he received from us. His dream is to have a house and to live quietly in it with his family.

In this group: Edicto, Nanci, Maria, Niurca, Lorenza, Natacha, Margarita, Gregorio, Eliana*, Digna, Crisela*, Leonida, Guerda*, Evelin, Kenny
