Samuel Grupo: 2 Group's story

Elene is a Haitian immigrant who arrived in the Dominican Republic in search of better living conditions for herself and her family. Elene lives in a batey in La Romana. Bateys are very impoverished communities where mostly Haitian immigrants live.

Elene started selling candy and gasoline, but over time, she realized that she needed to increase her income. She decided to change her business and open a small store, where she sells juices, rice, oil, lemons, sugar, chicken, grains, soft drinks, bread, butter, salami, and other things.

With this business, Elene generates income that helps her with the support of her family. She dreams of someday having a large, prosperous business and of seeing her children finish their education and become professionals.

Elene needs your help to purchase new merchandise to stock her business. Thank you for supporting Samuel Grupo: 2.
