Primera Esperanza 1 Group's story

Mayra is one of the members of her group named Primera Persona 1 (First Person). This is a group made up of five businesspeople women and men, dedicated to doing business all over their rural community, in the city of Hato Mayor. Mayra is a mother of two children and they live together with her and their father.

For about ten years, Mayra has had a beauty salon which she started with the first loan she took with Esperanza International. She has improved her business with every loan she has taken with Esperanza. This is her sixteenth loan. She plans to use this loan to buy different hair and beauty product lines.

Mayra's story is generally representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti. She thanks all of you for your support!!!

In this group: Mayra, Guillermo, Ciprian, Felicita, Amauris
