Cristo Redentor 3 Group's story

Elsa is one of the members of the group called Cristo Redentor 3. They are five micro-business women from San Pedro de Macoris, from a batey (a company town) surrounded by sugarcane fields where they live and work for their families. They are selling clothes, miscellaneous products, shoes, groceries, food, etc. She lives in a simple home with her family, which is comprised of five members: her children, her long-term partner, and herself.

Elsa is associated with Esperanza and started with us because she needed capital to start a business. She is very excited to be receiving her 10th loan from Esperanza Internacional after having sucessfully paid off her previous loans, and having taken steps to grow her business. She has had her business for around five years.

Elsa is planning to invest her new loan in purchasing rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, canned food, and others goods for daily meals. She is running a small food store, called a colmado, where neighbors can buy their goods in their own neighborhood. She said her most difficult challenge has been to start her business. She thanks you all for your support!!!

In this group: Elsa, Lucila, Petronila, Blasina, Juana
