La Reforma : Grupo 3 Group's story

Olga is a young, 23-year-old woman who lives in a batey, in the province of San Pedro de Macorís, in the Dominican Republic. Bateys are very poor communities where people live in extreme poverty, the majority of whom are Haitian immigrants.

Olga is the mother of two children. She started selling charcoal and chicken, but decided to make a change and sell pork, because it sells more. Her primary customers are neighbors, friends, family, and people who pass through the neighborhood. Olga says she has had her business for ten years, and it is the primary source of income for her family.

Olga finished middle school. She dreams of one day being a Spanish teacher. She also wants to see her business prosper in order to provide a better quality of life to her family.

Olga needs your help to buy pork to stock her business. Thank you for contributing to La Reforma: Grupo 3.
