El Guano 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Margarita is the coordinator of her group, El Guano (in honor to their community name) 2, 3 & 4. This group is comprised of 15 micro-entrepreneurs located in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their four children.

Margarita is excited to be taking her fourth loan with Esperanza International Dominican Republic after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. This businesswoman runs a fried food stall where she sales fried chicken, beef and pork, along with fried dough and plantains. This is a popular business in the Dominican Republic, especially for breakfast and dinner. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing meat, flour, cooking oil, butter, and other goods.

Margarita said that her most difficult challenge has been to raise her children and educate them while she has been working to support her long-term partner. She will use the profits to reinvest and to save for any needs in her family. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Margarita, Anita, Heleine, Nununa, Juan, Maria, Yvelise, Marie, Edyth, Johan*, Mildre, Agustine, Faustina, Claude, Cristina
