Rosas 1 Group's story

Ramona is the group coordinator of the group Las Rosas (the roses). The group is based in Los Alcarrizos, an industrial town north of Santo Domingo, where running water and electricity utilities are unreliable at best. It is here that she makes her home with her husband and four children in a simple structure comprised of wooden walls and a tin roof, a home she owns but to which she does not have the title.

With this loan, Ramona intends to continue expanding her business of selling shoes door to door to various customers in her neighborhood. She has over two years' experience in this business and will use her loan to purchase large quantities of merchandise at better prices. With the profits her business provides, Ramona intends to invest in school supplies for her children and continue investing in her business. Her long-term dream is that her children grow up to be important members of her community. She thanks you all for your support.
