Rayo De Luz 1 & 2 Group's story

Ana is the coordinator of her group "Rayo de Luz" (Ray of Light) 1 & 2. This group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. The group members are dedicated to selling cloth, food, shoes and many other miscellaneous products, in their batey community (generally made up of poor, migrant workers) and others nearby.

Ana has had her business for approximately 6 years, starting with some savings she had. She plans to use this loan to invest in her cafeteria, where she sells natural juices, soda, sandwiches and some snacks. With this loan, she will invest in her business by increasing her inventory.

She lives in a simple structure with her four children and her husband. She says her most difficult challenge has been to improve her business and introduce other products and services. She also added that Thanks to the Lord and these loans she has been able to increase her economic activities. One of her favorite things to do is work. Ana is excited about her fifth loan with Esperanza. She will use the profits to improve her business. Ana thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Ana, Natividad, Elilet, Yadhira, Yessica, Francisca, Criseida, Santa, Mercedes, Gumercinda, Yeni
