Sarmiento 1 Group's story

Marielle is a Haitian immigrant woman who arrived in the Dominican Republic fifteen years ago. She came with her sibling to seek work. She began selling food but, with time, she decided to change and establish a business selling clothing.

The difficult economic situation which is in the neighboring country of Haiti makes many people have to leave for other countries in search of better living conditions, as is the case of Marielle.

Marielle sells shirts, blouses, shoes, pants, skirts, dresses, etc. She has been in this business three years now and can help her family with the income she generates. Marielle has two children at home and dreams of being able to give them a better quality of life. Marielle also dreams of having a large store.

Marielle needs your help to be able to purchase merchandise to stock her business selling clothing.
