La Bendicion 4 & 5 Group's story

Altagracia is the coordinator of her group "La Bendicion" (Blessing) 4 & 5. She makes her home here in a simple house with her long-time partner. She says that her most difficult challenge is to raise her children and provide for her family. She plans to continue enjoying working most of the time.

She has had her business for seven years, starting after the first loan she received from Esperanza. Her group is located in the rural area surrounding Hato Mayor, an agricultural area. Altagracia is excited to be taking out her 12th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying pants, shirts, underwear and shoes. She will use the profits to reinvest in her business and to save.

She is dreaming of expanding her business into a clothing store and living safely and comfortably.

In this group: Altagracia, Maria, Evelina, Ivelice, Martha, Maria, Natacha, Rosa, Santa, Margarita
