Mano Amiga 1, 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Juliana is the coordinator of her group Mano Amiga (Friendly Hand) 1, 2, 3 & 4, group comprised of 20 entrepreneurs from Samana peninsula, a lush, rugged area with a nascent tourism industry, where they all run their businesses. Juliana makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their two children.

Juliana is excited to be taking her 10th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing and Avon beauty products. She will purchase pants, shirts, skirts, creams, perfumes, and makeup in the capital and then bring her merchandise back to her community to sell. Some of her purchases are orders from clients, others she buys to sell. She is saving to finish building her house and this is how she will use the profits.

She is still dreaming of buying a scooter to make moving around with her merchandise easier and in order to travel to other communities. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Juliana, Margarita, Yrene, Escolatica, Juana, Crucita, Juana, Yaniris, Pelagia, Julia*, Toribia, Felicita, Alexandra, Susana, Maria*, Jose, Luis, Matilde, Mercedes, Caridad
