Dios Verdadero 1 & 2 Group's story

The 10 group members of the Dios Verdadero (True God) Bank of Hope live in San Pedro D. Macoris in the southeastern Dominican Republic. Groups 1 and 2 from this bank are participating in this loan.

Juana T. is the Group 1 Coordinator She has a 14-year old child and runs a small variety store in her house where she sells a variety of products, specializing in accessories. Juana will use this loan to buy new merchandise to sell so she has more variety to offer her clients. Her dream is to own a boutique some day.

Most of the other group members are engaged in diverse retail activities, from selling undergarments to bread and fish. Some others have repair shops or cafeterias. They are all looking forward to expanding their businesses to keep providing their children and families with an improved quality of life.

On behalf of Esperanza International, thank you for supporting these entrepreneurs!
