Esperanza De Dios 5 Group's story

Clomena is the coordinator of her group, Esperanza de Dios (God's Hope) 5, composed of five Haitians who are living in a batey near the city of La Romana, an area where the economy is dominated by sugar cane, and where running water (none of it potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home there in a simple structure with her long-term partner. Their children are grown and living in Haiti.

Clomena is excited to be taking out her third loan with Esperanza to invest in her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her small food stand by purchasing vegetables, meat, charcoal, and fruit. She will use the profits to reinvest in her business and to cover their needs. She also helps her children and family by sending money to them when they need it. Clomena thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Clomena, Mercedes, Leyan, Paulina, Yelena
