Dios Es Mi Pastor 3 & 4 Group's story

Susana is one of the members of the Group Dios es Mi Pastor 3 & 4 (God is My Shepherd), located in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. This group is located in one of the rural areas called Batey, populated by Haitian immigrants who came to the country to work in the sugar field plantation. Most of the members in this group are Haitian citizens.

Susana, who sells miscellaneous products such as clothing, shoes, cosmetics, and accessories, is very excited to receive her 12th loan from Esperanza International, after having repaid her previous loans and thus taken a step towards expanding her business. With this loan, she is planning to purchase more inventory.

Susana tells us that her most important challenge and goal is to set up a store where she can sell all of her items instead of going outside and walking in her communities and others nearby. She enjoys being at home with her long-term partner and five children; right now just two of them live with her and their father. She is planning to reinvest her profits in her business and save for her future plans and challenges. She thanks all of you for your support!!!

In this group: Susana, Mathilde, Andrenise, Carmen, Marie, Rosenie, Lucia, Ifonise*, Ana, Adelina
