Florentino I Group's story

The Group 1 from the Florentino Bank of Hope in Los Alcarrizos is on their third loan cycle with Esperanza International. Los Alcarrizos is a large district on the northwestern outskirts of Santo Domingo. Many of its habitants are Haitian inmigrants.

Suze C. is one of the group members. Suze is 31 years old, is married and has 2 children. She sells seasoning and cooking spices in her small business at home. All the other group members are involved in clothing sales. Suze's customers are mostly from her own neighborhood. She will use this loan to buy some more products to continue her activities. Her pastimes include reading the Bible, praying, and thinking about new ways to "spice up" her business. She also dreams of providing her children a good education.

On behalf of Esperanza International, thank you for supporting this group!

In this group: Suze, Marie, Madeline, Litone, Mimose
