Ana's Group's story

Ana is a member of the “Canal de Bendición 1,2” group. Most of the group's members are Dominican-Haitians or emigrants from Haiti who live in 'bateyes' (company towns where sugar workers live) in the town of Romana, one of the Dominican Republic's tourist destinations which has a high scale of luxury.

Ana's business is selling. She acquires her clothing in the flea markets of Santo Domingo or on the border with Haiti. Ana is married and has 4 children. She tells us that her biggest challenge is being able to provide her kids with a good education.

Ana is very excited to be receiving her third loan from Esperanza Internacional and will invest it in her business, which she has had for around 8 years. She is planning to invest her loan in buying various items of new clothing like pants, t-shirts, jeans and short pants, etc. She will use her profits to re-invest in her business. Her dream is to make her business a successful one. She thanks you all for your support!!

In this group: Ana, Mariluz, Andremena, Yeni, Andrecarmen, Teresa, Veronica*, Rosa, Yaneta*, Lucia
