One Changed Life: Margarita’s Story


Margarita lives with her husband and 11 children in a home owned by a sugar cane manufacturing company. Since 1992, she has been working toward her goal of building her own home.  Hurricane damage has thwarted her progress, but Margarita continues to dream of a home to call her own. She sought a loan from Esperanza, HOPE’s partner in the Dominican Republic, a few years ago to begin her business selling chickens. She utilizes her loans to travel to a neighboring town where she can purchase chickens and saves as much of her business income as possible to put toward the continued construction of her home.



As Christ’s followers responding to His great love, HOPE International seeks physical, social, spiritual, and personal restoration in places of brokenness. Through Christ-centered economic development, we empower men and women to strengthen their families, build their businesses, and unleash their dreams.
