Mujeres De Debora 2 Group's story

Luz Maria is one of the members of the group Mujeres de Debora 2. This group is located in the city of Puerto Plata, whose population is made up of Dominicans and Haitian migrants. The region's economy is dependent on the rum industry, as well as tourism and real estate. This is Luz Maria's seventh loan with Esperanza. She is running a Colmado (a small grocery store) and she will invest in her business by buying rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, canned food, and other goods. Luz Maria has been operating a business for approximately three years, and she started with her first loan in Esperanza. She is the mother of three children. While she worked in different jobs and made various businesses, she saved her profits and helped her husband. She tells us that her most difficult challenge was to pay for her children's education, especially when hard times were coming. One of Luz Maria's dreams is to travel to another country. Luz Maria thanks you all for your support!!!

In this group: Luz Maria, Juana, Anaika, Danny, Marta
