Gs Dios En Copellito Group's story

Marie is a Haitian woman who immigrated to the Dominican Republic a few years ago from the neighboring country of Haiti in search of a better life. The difficult, impoverished situation in which the Haitian citizens live makes them leave for other countries in search of better development opportunities.

For ten years, Marie has worked selling clothes, like skirts, dresses, shirts, pants, and blouses. She also sells perfumes, colognes, and creams.

With this business selling clothing, Marie generates income to help support her family. She says she has loyal clients who always buy.

Marie was not able to finish school. She only completed the eighth grade, but this has not limited her work or getting her family ahead.

Marie needs your help to buy new merchandise and stock her clothing store.
