A loan of $2,800 helped a member to buy vegetables and fruits.


El Samaritano Group's story

Dominga plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying vegetables and fruits. She has had her business for six years, starting after the first loan she received from Esperanza. Her group is located in the rural area surrounding Hato Mayor, an agricultural area. She makes her home here in a simple house with her long-time partner and five of the eight children they have. She says that her most difficult challenge is to raise her children. In the meantime, she enjoys doing business. She plans to continue to enjoy work most of the time. She is dreaming of seeing her children become professional and good people. Dominga is excited to be taking out her 12th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She will save her profits to reinvest in her business. Dominga is the coordinator of her group El Samaritano ("The Samaritan").

In this group: Dominga, Dieumene, Marcelina, Ivelisse*, Frinet, Monica, Tomasa*, Colporina, Ramona, Miguelina
