A loan of $275 helped to start her fruit selling stand by buying fruits at the market.

Iris Amador's story

Iris is determined to start working on selling various tropical fruits as a start to her own business. She plans to start off buying fruits at the “people’s central market” and bring them with a hired transport to her market area. She is presently living with her husband and three children, two boys and one girl.

For the time being, Iris is assisting the family’s economic needs by working three days a week as a maid in a private residence at the capital city of Santo Domingo. This means she has to take public transportation to get to work. Just this factor takes a 25% toll from her precious USD$100.00 (approximate equivalent) a month salary. She lives in the northern part of Santo Domingo, in an a populous area called Los Alcarrizos, in the community of Barrio Paraiso, where she has lived for 12 years now.
