Cristo Es La Esperanza 4, 5 & 6 Group's story

Margarita is the coordinator of Cristo es la Esperanza 4, 5 & 6 (Christ is the hope). She is a young mother with three children. She lives with them and her long-term partner in a simple structure, located in a rural community in the city of La Romana. Specifically, the community is a batey (company town) founded for sugarcane workers.

Margarita says that her most important challenge is to have her own house and to raise her children with a safe home and support all their needs. She operates a fruits and vegetables stall, a place where she sells goods to make daily income for food. This is a small stall in front of her house selling the most favored vegetables like plantains, cassava, potatoes, and veggies for salad. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business to buy more vegetables and fruits.

Margarita is excited to receive her third loan with Esperanza, each one helping her to improve her business. With her profits, she will reinvest in her business and save. Margarita thanks all of you for your support of her business and her group.
