Bienestar En Dios (Well-Being In God) Groups Ii-3, I-4&5's story

Yuly R. R. lives in a Haitian batey, a housing community provided by the sugarcane companies for their poor field workers. In her little wooden house with a tin roof and cement floor, Yuly lives with her husband and two children, ages 4 and 6.

In order to contribute to the family income, especially in the sugarcane off season, Yuly has a small business selling clothing. She buys the clothing in the capital of Santo Domingo, about 2 hours away from where she lives, and sells the clothing in the touristy beach city of Bavaro, another two hours of travel in the opposite direction. When she travels for work, her mother cares for her two children.

Yuly has successfully repaid 3 loans to Esperanza International and is now requesting her fourth. With the money she hopes to continue growing her business so that she can one day afford her own house and send her children to college so that they can have professional careers.

Note: This is a group loan for 13 people.

In this group: Yuly, Petronila, Elizabeth, Guarionex, Marie*, Damaso, Rene*, Leonelia, Miguelina, Alinda, Yuderqui, Miguelina, Martha
