Gs Mujeres Valientes : Grupo 1 Group's story

Filomene, age 69, is a mature, hardworking, and humble woman of Haitian nationality. She came to the Dominican Republic 20 years ago with Janco, her life's companion. Her educational level is basic, due to few opportunities for schooling in her native country during her time. Now she lives in Santo Domingo with her three children, and Janco, her life's companion.

When she was a girl, Filomene began working, selling clothing for women and men. Now she has a shop where she sells clothing, underwear, etc. She is requesting this loan to buy merchandise such as blouses, polo shirts, pants, t-shirts, flip-flops, lingerie, and other items. Her dream is to stop paying rent and to have her own house. Please support Filomene towards achieving her dream of having her own house.

Many thanks for supporting the group "GS Mujeres Valientes: Grupo 1", three hardworking and determined women.

In this group: Filomene, Ciremise, Kathy
