La Excelencia En Cristo 1 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy merchandise to sell, such as toothbrushes, powder, hair serum, dishes, cups, earrings, rings, belts, women's and men's wallets, and shoes.

La Excelencia En Cristo 1 Group's story

Raquel lives in a village of the La Romana province in the Dominican Republic. La Romana is known for being a very touristy province because of its beautiful beaches and resorts. It also has very impoverished communities, like the villages where people live in extreme poverty, most of them Haitian immigrants.

Raquel is known in her community for being a very helpful and cooperative woman who is always willing to come to the aid of others. Raquel is the mother of six children and they are her main reason for giving the best of herself every day.

The difficult situation Raquel grew up in didn't allow her to go to school. Her parents didn't have the resources necessary to pay for her education and Raquel was only able to go up the seventh year of primary school.

For ten years, Raquel has been selling different types of products, like hairbrushes, face powder, hair serum, sets of dishes, sets of glasses, earrings, belts, women's and men's wallets, and different types of shoes.

With this business, Raquel generates the income she needs to help support her family and buy items and products for the home.
