Plan De Lucha Group 2's story

Plan D. Lucha consists of a group of entrepreneurs in the small town of Hato Mayor in the Dominican Republic who are seeking a micro loan. The members of this group have successfully completed four loans and are eager to continue to grow their businesses with another loan.

Mercedez is the leader of this group and runs a fruit stand. With this loan, she would like to buy more bananas so she can make more guineo, a popular local dish of fried green bananas.

Mercedez lives with her husband and four children aged 20, 17, 15, and 14. She says that her family has been blessed with good health and she would like to grow her business in order to continue providing a healthy life for her children.

Mercedez is an inspiring example of the opportunities that micro loans give the members of this community.

In this group: Mercedez, Ceferino, Lucia, Milagro, Teolinda
