Gloria 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Group's story

Violeta is the coordinator of her group called Gloria (Glory). This group is compounded mostly by Haitian citizens. Her group is located in the areas surrounding San Pedro, a poor area where the economy used to thrive on sugar cane but has more recently waned, and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable.

She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and two children. Violeta is excited to be taking out her first loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing more clothes, shoes and cosmetic products. She will use the profits to save and improve her business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Violeta, Maria, Nana, Claudette, Monique, Nikerlange*, Jusselle*, Dina, Anel*, Wilna, Mariza, Jeanne, Mileite*, Cristina, Adela, Melana, Judette, Ssentilo, Oner, Margarita, Monica, Roseline, Altagracia*, Ramon, Jerode
