Gs La Colina Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy perfumes to sell; she is a Haitian immigrant.

Gs La Colina Group's story

Lina is an immigrant from Haiti, who came to the Dominican Republic with her mother in search of better living conditions, escaping the difficult economic situation in the neighboring country of Haiti.

Lina is known in her community as very collaborative and helpful. She began selling in an ice cream store, and later was selling clothing. Now she has decided to start the business of selling perfume, because it is easier to move around selling perfume.

Lina has two children at home, who are her motivation to go out every day and give them the best. She dreams of seeing her children in better living conditions, and of being able to have her own house.

Lina was not able to finish school due to the difficult situation of poverty in which she was raised; her parents did not have money to send her to school.

Lina needs your help to buy new merchandise and to stock her business of selling perfumes.

Thank you for contributing to GS La Colina.
