La Union Hace La Fuerza Group's story

Denise P. is the president of her Bank of Hope in the small community of Imbert, on the north coast of Puerto Plata. 28 years old, she is married with one child. Denise sells new clothing out of a small store, and takes pride in the fact that she sells good quality clothing. She attends a Baptist church in the area, and enjoys reading her Bible in her spare time. Her favorite foods are rice and chicken, but she also likes the “ducles” that people are famous for in the Dominican Republic. She hopes that one day she can buy a house and a car because it would make her life much easier.

This is the first loan that this community has applied for, and they are all very excited to improve and start their businesses. Many of the women in this bank are Haitian, and have come to the Dominican Republic in hopes of a better life and future. Esperanza hopes that every single one of these women will experience success and begin the process of lifting themselves out of poverty.

Oh behalf of this entire group, and Esperanza – thank you for your continued support and generosity!

In this group: Denise, Estelina, Janithe, Elicia, Eliasienne, Marie, Anne, Venicia, Daphne, Jacsinette, Monique, Gladis, Kelly, Mimose, Alina
