Victoria Adelante : Grupo 1 Group's story

Patricia is a young woman who lives in a "batey" [sugar workers' town] in the province of San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. The "bateyes" are very impoverished communities where most of the residents are Haitian immigrants.

Patricia is a young woman who was born into an environment of much poverty, which kept her from finishing school and having a professional career. She had a stand where she sold sweets and cookies, but in time she had to give up the stand because she did not earn much. Later she started a business selling synthetic hair, and this is going better and she is able to help to provide for her family.

Patricia says that her sales were very affected by the situation with the pandemic, but little by little, they are improving.

Patricia needs your help to buy new merchandise and stock her business.
