Cristo Y Nuestro Esfuerzo 5 And 7 Group's story

Leonel makes his home in a simple structure with his four children and his new long-term partner. He says that his most difficult challenge has been raising his children without their mother. While he continues to do so, he intends to carry on attending church.

Leonel is excited to be taking his 8th loan with Esperanza, having successfully repaid his previous loans and grown his business. He has had his business for almost twelve years. He plans to use this loan to invest in his business by buying shoes by the dozen in different sizes and colors. He has been saving part of his business profits to build a house, to pay for his children's studies and to provide other needs.

Leonel is the coordinator of his group Cristo y Nuestro Esfuerzo (Christ and Our Effort) 5 and 7. This group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourism industry dominate the economy.

In this group: Leonel, Maria, Jesulene, Yaquelin, Antonine, Marie, Miguelina, Nelly, Miliana, Venecia
