Progresando En Valores 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Ysabel is the coordinator of her group, Progresando en Valores 1, 2 & 3 (Progress in Values). Her group is located in Samana, a lush, rugged peninsula with a nascent tourism industry. She makes her home in a simple structure, with her long-term partner and four children.

Ysabel is excited to be taking her sixth loan with Esperanza International Dominican Republic. She has had her business, which she started with some savings, for around six years. She plans to use this loan to increase her inventory, by buying men's and women's clothes. She will use the profits to continue building her house.

Ysabel says that her most difficult challenge is to finish building her house. In the meantime, she continues to enjoy sewing. Her dreams are to work hard and move her business forward and, with the help of God, she will. She thanks all of you for your support!

In this group: Ysabel, Yrene, Cruz, Agustina, Hilaria, Faustina, Marleny, Maria*, Leocadia*, Antonio, Melida, Mercedes, Estefania, Juliana, Evangelista
