Amor Y Paz De Dios 2 Group's story

Elena is the coordinator of a group called Amor y Paz en Dios (Love and Peace in God) 2. She lives with her long-term partner. She is the mother of six children, but they are not living together with their parents. This group is located in the rural areas surrounding El Seybo. They all live in a rural community, surrounded by sugarcane fields on the outskirts of the city.

Elena started her business with her own savings. Having promptly repaid her previous loans, she is excited to be taking her eleventh loan from Esperanza, which she will invest in her business to buy fruit, sugar, yucca, cooking oil, etc. She sells natural fruit juices and chulitos (dough made from yucca that is filled with meat or cheese and then fried). She is planning to use her profits to build her house and further develop her business.

Elena says that her most difficult challenges have been her economic problems and health. Meanwhile, she plans to continue attending her church.

In this group: Elena, Santa, Candida, Julia, Maria
