Las Gorditas 1 Group's story

Martha lives in the town of Guerra, in the province of San Pedro de Macorís, in the Dominican Republic. The primary sources of employment in the town are the free trade zone, organized public transportation, cargo transportation, business, and agriculture.

Martha is an entrepreneurial woman. In order to survive and help her family financially she works selling underwear, such as bras, panties, boxers, and pajamas, among other things. Martha says she's worked in this business for five years. Her constant challenge is that many people buy her merchandise but later don't want to pay. Despite this, Martha says she has a good clientele and generates good income selling underwear.

In a country with few work opportunities for women with limited education, Martha has had to work on her own from a very young age in order to help support her family. Martha needs your help to buy merchandise and continue in her business selling underwear. Thank you for supporting Las Gorditas 1.
