Unidas Con Cristo 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator of her group Unidas con Cristo (Unite with Christ) 1, 2 & 3. This group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. She is excited to be taking out her fifth loan.

She sells clothing, including pants, underwear, blouses, skirts, and shirts. She started this business with the first loan she took from Esperanza International. She will reinvest the profits in her business and provide for her children's school supplies.

Maria makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner and five of her eight children. She says that her most challenging goal is to acquire her own house.

She thanks you all for your support!!!

In this group: Maria, Josefa, Susana, Yenita, Elianta, Nereyda, Josefina, Yafreisy*, Molie, Gabriela, Violeta*, Miguel, Emilia, Francisca, Elimena
