but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy shoes and creams to revitalize her business and diversify the items for purchase.

Montecristi En Progreso Group's story

Yudelka is a young woman, 32 years old, who, together with her life partner, works hard to support their children. She lives in a "batey" in San Pedro de Macorís, a province of the Dominican Republic.

The bateys are places known for growing and harvesting sugar cane (centers of sugar-cane production), surrounded by rural houses. They are regions with a population with few resources. Residents have to cover large distances to reach any commercial center for obtaining basic staple products. For this reason, small businesses are developed in people's houses, to enable survival.

Yudelka has a business selling Label and Avon cosmetics, creams, and perfumes by catalog. She's been doing this business and developing a clientele for 4 years. She hopes that her business will enable her to have a better future. For this reason, she's come for a loan with the goal of adding new merchandise to her business.

Yudelka needs your support to buy shoes and creams. This will enable her to revitalize her business and diversify the items for purchase.

Thank you for supporting GS Montecristi in advancing in its economic development and creating an impact on its future.
