Cristo Abre Las Puerta Grupo 2 Group's story

Filomena lives in a batey in the province of San Pedro de Macoris. Bateys are very impoverished communities where people, primarily Haitian immigrants, live in extreme poverty.

Filomena is the mother of three children who are her reason to get up each day to seek the household's daily sustenance.

For nine years, Filomena has worked selling underwear such as panties, bras, boxers, pajamas, socks, and other things. With this business, Filomena generates the income which helps sustain her family.

Filomena says she has a good clientele although sometimes she has challenges when she sells on credit and some customers do not want to pay.

Filomena grew up in a very poor environment and was unable to finish school. She only got up to the seventh year of primary school, however this has not prevented her from working and helping her family.

Filomena needs your help to purchase merchandise and to stock her business.
