Con Cristo Se Puede : Grupo 1 Group's story

Juana is an entrepreneur who lives in a batey in the province of La Romana in the Dominican Republica. Bateys are ver poor communities where extremely impoverished people live, most of them Haitian immigrants.

Juana started out selling soft drinks, water and gasoline but over time this business did not give her much profit so she decided to change and start selling clothing such as dresses, skirts, shirts, blouses, polo shirts, pajamas, shoes, etc.

With this clothing business Juana earns more income and can help her family better.

Juana says that sometimes there are challenges in the business, for example there are customers who buy on credit and then do not want to pay, but she also has great loyal clientele.

Juana dreams of one day getting out of the poverty cycle in which she has lived for decades.

She is applying for a loan to buy new merchandise and stock her business.
