A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fish, crab meat, shrimp and oil.


Fuente De Bendición Group's story

Reina Maria D. L. is a 21-year-old woman who lives with her husband and two children (ages 4 and 2) in a small community in the eastern province of Hato Mayor in the Dominican Republic. She opened a small stand selling seafood products and snacks one year ago. She recently came to Esperanza because she lacked adequate capital to buy enough products for her stand. The money from this loan will go towards purchasing fish, crab, shrimp, and oil to expand her inventory further. It is Reina´s hope to continue to growing her business so that she will be able to help support her young children and proviD. them with good health care and education.

Reina is the leader of the 5-person micro-bank group, Fuente D. Bendición. In English, this means `source of blessing´. Each of these unique Dominican entrepreneurs unite in solidarity, allowing them to access funding that they would otherwise never be able to receive on their own.

On behalf of Reina, the Fuente D. Bendición group, and the entire team here at Esperanza International, we thank you for your support with this micro loan!

In this group: Reina Maria, Emelyn, Lidia, Yolanda, Idania
