A loan of $4,750 helped a member to purchase clothes to offer for sale.


El Gran Esfuerzo 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Edicto owns a clothing sales business. He is a member of the El gran esfuerzo ("the great effort") 1, 2 & 3 Group located in the city of Hato Mayor, a primarily agricultural region. It is one of the most rural cities in the Dominican Republic. This group is dedicated mostly to people in the door-to-door business, vending their products on foot in different communities.

Edicto is the hard-working father of six children. He lives with his wife and two of their children; the others are living in their own homes, and some reside in Haiti. He tells us that his biggest challenge is to finish building the family house, and he is still saving his business profits toward this goal. With this loan, he will invest in his business by purchasing products like pants, blouses, shirts, and underwear to offer for sale.

Edicto is very excited to receive his twelfth loan through Esperanza Internacional, after having successfully repaid his previous loan. He has had this business for about seven years. He started the business using the first loan he received from us. His dream is to finish construction on his house and to live quietly in it with his family.

In this group: Edicto, Ana, Nanci, Carmen, Niurca, Lorenza, Yan, Margarita, Yoselyn, Alberto, Eliandra, Fello*, Fifa, Edrina*, Leonida
