Gs Padre Nuestro Group's story

Lancia is single and has four children. She lives in La Romana in the Dominican Republic. She went there in 2007 to study and she finished high school. With her education she started her own business. For the past 5 years, she has sold hairpieces, creams, shampoos, and various other beauty products.

She wants to be able to have a bigger business with a large shop. If she is going to do that, she needs your help to buy more merchandise for her beauty product sales. Lancie has the intelligence and motivation to be successful, but in her situation it is very difficult to obtain financial assistance.

This type of assistance is not common in communities like hers. You have the opportunity to support Lancie with your loan, which provides support in a sustainable way. Thank you for lending to GS Padre Nuestro.
