Con Dios Adelante 1 & 2 Group's story

Xiomara is the coordinator of Con Dios Adelante (Forward with God) 1 & 2. This group is made up of ten micro-entrepreneur women. The group is based in the city of La Romana, a rural area of the country dedicated to the harvest of sugarcane, in a batey (company town) founded for sugarcane workers, especially for Haitians. Xiomara lives with her long-term partner and her three children. She says that her most important challenges are to continue improving her business and to provide change for her family. After her previous loans, her business is expanding and gaining more clients. Xiomara enjoys working and cooking for her family. She is running a sales business where she sells miscellaneous items such as cosmetics, shoes and clothes. She will use her loan to purchase many items to increase her business inventory. She is excited to receive her eighth loan with Esperanza. She has been part of this group for almost five years, and with each loan she has been able to improve her business. With her business profits, she saves and reinvests in her business when she needs to buy bigger orders. Xiomara thanks all of you for your support of her business and her group.

In this group: Xiomara, Anita, Mariecarmella, Marielolive, Yemena, Denis, Timena, Yela, Samantha*, Nana
