Los Exelentes #1 Group's story

Birtudes lives in San Pedro Barrio Blanco, Dominican Republic. Birtudes operates a natural medicine business from her home.

She heard about micro-finance from a friend and took out a loan two years ago. Birtudes is now requesting her fourth loan from Esperanza to meet the high demand for medicine in Barrio Blanco. She is requesting 5,000 Dominican Pesos. With this new loan, Birtudes plans to expand her selection and restock her inventory. She will purchase natural vitamins, teas, ointments and clay spreads.

Birtudes sells natural medicine because she sees a need in her community and thinks they are good for the body. Yet she confesses that owning a business isn’t easy, because she has to push and do whatever it takes to survive. She hopes to be able to provide for her two children, especially the young one who is now 6 years old.

Birtudes appreciates it if you would consider funding her and her group’s businesses. Esperanza thanks you for your support!
