Gs Los Compañeros Group's story

Nelly is a female Haitian immigrant who arrived with her mother in the Dominican Republic in order to find better conditions and flee the difficult poverty situation in Haiti.

Nelly is a mother of three children, so she strives each day to provide for their needs and offer them a better way of life. She started selling peanuts, but over time, the income she generated was not sufficient. Nelly then decided to expand her business and set up a vending stall where she could sell other types of merchandise such as rice, green beans, provisions, salami, cheese, seasonings, and other items. She is known in her community for being a helpful and cooperative woman. Nelly lacks a formal education because she never went to school and grew up in poverty. She dreams of someday providing her children a better quality of life so that they can break the cycle of poverty and leave behind the life that they were born into.

Nelly needs the assistance of the lenders with buying new merchandise to restock her business. Thank you for contributing to “Los Compañeros” solidarity group.
