Cristo Salva 2 Group's story

Rosa is the coordinator of the Cristo Salva Group 2. Her family is made up of five children and her long-term partner. Her most difficult challenge has been to raise her children, in a Batey (sugar workers' town), because the opportunities for them are not the same as if they were able to study in a main city. She wants to have her house and a stable business, to save and live a tranquil and safe life.

Rosa is very excited to receive her four loan through Esperanza International. She took her first loan around two years ago, and after receiving these loans she has been able to make investments in her small business.

Rosa has a Colmado, this is a small food market, where neighbors go to buy their daily meal, She will invest this loan to buy rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, flour, and other goods. Rosa dreams of having a safe house and a successful business.

This group is composed of five Haitian immigrants located in the city of La Romana, where tourists and sugarcane are the biggest industries. They all live in a rural area called Batey, surrounded by sugarcane fields.

In this group: Rosa, Liphena, Tita, Luciana, Belki
