Hacia Adelante 1, 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Maria is one of the members of the group Hacia adelante (Going Forward) 1, 2, 3 & 4. This group is located in a community called La Caleta, close to one of the famous beaches in Dominican Republic and the main airport, which gives Maria the opportunity to live in a community outside of San Pedro de Macoris with a lot going on, people trading or accessing various sources of employment. She makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner. She operates a cybercafe with photocopying, computers, Internet, scanning and other services, and she also has a stall where she sells miscellaneous products.

Maria is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She has had her business for six years, and she started with her own capital after saving for a while. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing some hardware, expendable materials, and some miscellaneous products like cosmetics, women's accessories and jewelry. She says that her most difficult challenges are to improve her business and to help her family. In the meantime, she plans to continue enjoying cooking for her family.

In this group: Maria, Apolonia, Glenny, Juan, Sandra*, Wanda, Eladia, Jose, Lonicia, Narda, Dulce, Rossania*, Flor, Lissette, Carmen*, Ana, Maria, Martha, Fredesvinda, Lucia
