Dios Es Mi Pastor 5 Group's story

Maria is one of the members of the group Dios Es Mi Pastor 5 (God is My Shepherd), located in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. Maria sells clothing in her business. This is the 8th loan she has requested from Esperanza and she is planning to expand her business inventory by buying more clothes and others miscellaneous products. She is very excited to be part of this group, because she knows there are a lot of hardworking women whose lives are being changed by these loans, and she wants this to happen to her too.

With this new investment, Maria will be able to produce more and increase her sales. She started her business about 9 years ago with a small amount of money she had saved. She tells us that her challenges are to have her house, to learn how to write and read, and to help her children with their homework. She is also working to provides them with all she didn't get when she was a kid. Maria has 3 children and she lives together with them and their father, her long term partner. She is planning to reinvest her profits in the business to make it bigger and sustainable. Her dream is to see all her children become professionals and good people.
