La Esperanza 1, 3 & 4 Group's story

Rosa is one of the members of her group, La Esperanza 1, 3 & 4 (Hope). She lives in the city of La Romana, where the sugar cane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. Rosa has three children, two of whom live together with her and her long-term partner in one of the rural areas surrounding this tourist city. Most of this sugar town's population are Haitians who emigrated and settled in to work in the sugar cane industry.

Rosa has been running her business for around three years and this is her third loan with Esperanza Internacional. She sells miscellaneous products like clothes, bread and gasoline. She sells them in her home located on the main road in the town, where many people pass by and buy her products. She started her business with some capital she saved by working in the city. With her business profits, she will be able to expand her sales and plans to build a locale for her business.

Her most difficult challenges are to buy her house in the city and to have an improved business. She wants to be able to send her children to attend university. Thank you for your support!
