Saturnina, 36, is married with three children. The boys, 14 and 12, are attending the public school in Santo Domingo, the capital. The girl, 6, is studying in the same township. Saturnina’s husband, a vehicle driver, is paid on an hourly basis when he gets the opportunity to be hired on occasion for a company. Thus far, he can’t afford a truck so that he can work full-time.

Saturnina applied to borrow US $375.00 in order to move forward her business, a little shop she started 5 years ago in her house. In fact, she sells a lot of things like toilet articles, shaving cream, antiperspirant, clothes for women and girls and so on. Now she wants to purchase more products and a showcase to put the new goods so that the customers can easily view and appreciate the products.

Saturnina thinks that’s a safe investment and is sure that her business will improve. This way, she’ll have sufficient money to help her husband cope with their family issues.
