Mujeres Unidas 1 & 3 Group's story

Valentina is the group coordinator for Mujeres Unidas (United Women) 1 and 3. This group is located in Hato Mayor, a rural area in the Dominican Republic. Valentina lives with her long-term partner and her five children in a simple home in the rural village of Hato Mayor, where the cacao harvest is one of the main economic activities. Valentina is an excellent Esperanza client and has successfully repaid seven loans. With this loan, her 16th, she plans to buy fruit and cacao. She sells in her community and to chocolate producers. Using the proceeds from her business, Valentina has been able to purchase clothes and food for her children. She has also repaired her house. Her dream for the future is to continue to educate her children and make improvements to her house. Valentina thanks you for your support in helping her achieve her goals!
