Carmen's story

Carmen is one of Esperanza International's entrepreneurs. She is working hard to change her home structure. With her long-term partner, she decided to take a loan with Esperanza to continue improving their house.

Carmen has been taking loans with Esperanza International since three years ago. She is receiving her 7th loan, and this one is to build a water tank. She needs to store water because this is the only way they can have a reliable water source.

She is one of the members in the group called Dios es mi Pastor (God is my Shepherd) located in one of the rural villages in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. With this loan she will buy cement, sand, pipes and other materials for water uses. Esperanza International runs a program for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their business and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their houses while running their businesses and attending their group meetings. Carmen thanks all of you for your support!
