Cristo Salva 3 Group's story

Dieula is the coordinator of the Cristo Salva Group 3. Her family is made up of five children and a husband. She said that her most important challenge is to work hard so she can take home extra income; they are a big family and as all poor families they have many needs. She has the strength to work for her family.

Dieula is very excited to receive her four loan through Esperanza International. She took her first loan almost two years ago. She is running a small grocery stall, where she sells candies, and many snacks such as chips, gums, chocolate, etc.

Dieula is planning to invest by purchasing products to increase her inventory. With each loan she takes, she makes her small business bigger. Her plans are to expand her business even further.

This group is composed of five Haitian immigrant women, who live in the city of La Romana, where tourists and the sugar cane are the biggest industries. They all live in a rural area called Batey, surrounded by sugar cane fields.

In this group: Dieula, Lomilia, Elsa, Maria, Suna
