Resistencia 1, 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Ylena is the coordinator of her group "Resistencia 1, 2, 3 & 4" ("Resistance"). The group is located in the rural area of San Pedro de Macoris, surrounded by sugar cane fields. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her three children. She is a single mother. Her most difficult challenge has been to raise her children and educate them.

Ylena is excited to be seeking her first loan with Esperanza International Dominican Republic. She started doing business almost two years ago, walking with a bag of clothing, cosmetics, and shoes.

Ylena plans to use this loan to invest in her business and she will buy cosmetics and women's accessories. She will also increase her inventory by buying miscellaneous items. She will use her business profits to reinvest in her business. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Ylena, Carlos, Alourde, Tata*, Francia, Beatriz, Solange, Marie, Iliana, Wilner, Siana, Yeniflor, Johan, Cheli, Yvonia, Jeanette, Fritener, Lerisena, Mirlade*, Marie
