Cristo Redentor : Grupo 5 Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy raw ingredients (flour, sugar, milk, coconut, oil, salt, etc.).

Cristo Redentor : Grupo 5 Group's story

Lucia is 69 years old. She was born in a historic time in the Dominican Republic. She resides in a batey (sugar workers' town) in San Pedro de Macorís with her son and her life partner. The bateyes in the Dominican Republic are communities of extreme poverty, where the vast majority of people who live in these places have to emigrate to other areas in search of jobs in order to survive. Lucia, although she did not have the opportunity to finish her studies, considers herself an active, hard-working and business woman.

Lucia has been in business from an early age, as she has had to work hard to survive and have a decent life. Lucia runs an empanada stand and makes homemade sweets to sell. This business of hers allows her to cover her expenses and help her relatives with what she can.

She is requesting this loan to buy raw materials for the production of homemade pies and sweets. Lucia needs to buy flour, sugar, milk, coconut, oil, salt, etc. Her dream is for her business to grow and to help her family move forward.

Thank you very much for trusting in the business vision of Lucia and the Cristo Redentor 5 group.
