A loan of $1,050 helped to buy concrete blocks and cement.


Vicenta's story

Vicenta is one of the members with a housing loan from the city of Samana. This is her 13th loan, which she will use to improve her house. She has had her food-selling business for over eight years, starting with her own capital. With her last loan, she invested in her business, where she sells fried food.

Esperanza International Dominican Republic runs a program for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their businesses and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their house at the same time running their business and attending their group meetings.

Vicenta is the mother of five children and they live together with her and her long-term partner. She works and lives in a rural town in Samana. She will use this loan to buy cement, concrete blocks and other construction materials to change the wood walls in her house to concrete blocks. She thanks God, Esperanza International Dominican Republic and all of you for this opportunity. In her name and that of her family, she thanks all of you for your support!
