Dios Proveera : Grupo 3 Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase merchandise to sell such as bread, fruit, candy, crackers, juice, etc.

Dios Proveera : Grupo 3 Group's story

Milienne lives in a batey [a settlement around a sugar mill] in the La Romana province in the Dominican Republic. Despite being a tourist province, La Romana is also an impoverished community. The people who live in the bateyes live in extreme poverty as the majority are Haitian immigrants.

Milenne started selling fruit but was not generating much income and decided to set up a street booth where she sells crackers, sweets, candies, juices, etc. She also sells maví [a tree bark based beverage] and bread with mamba [a peanut based spread]. Milenne says that she is doing much better with this business and generates more income.

Milenne is a mother of three children and desires to have her own home and see her children have a better quality of life.

Milenne needs your help to purchase new merchandise to stock her business and continue with her sales.
