Mi Fiel Amigo Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase clothing merchandise to sell and earn income to support her family.

Mi Fiel Amigo Group's story

Sophia is a Haitian immigrant woman who came to the Dominican Republic with the help of her mother 5 years ago. She sought better living conditions, fleeing from the difficult poverty situation in which she lived in Haiti.

At first, she helped her mother at a business selling clothing. After meeting her spouse and having two children, she had an eatery. But, due to an accident, she no longer can cook. Then, she began her own business selling clothing.

Sophia is resistant and continues to support and maintain her family. She did not have a very easy life, however she has hope for the future and wants her business to grow and be successful.

If she has your help, she can get more merchandise to stock her clothing sales business. Moving to the Dominican Republic was the beginning of a search for a better life and now her business will provide for her family and the lives of her children.

Thank you for contributing to Mi Fiel Amigo.
