Gs Asociacion Grupo 2 Group's story

Yanela is a young mother. She is humble, entrepreneurial and of Haitian nationality. She arrived in the Dominican Republic when she was one year old with her parents.
Her parents had to leave their home country due to the economic situation, the poverty and corruption. She was able to finish her basic education but could not continue as she had to make a declaration as a Dominican citizen and this process had a fee that at that time they could not pay.
Yanela has four children for whom she has worked hard to give them a good education together with her partner.
In all the time she has lived in the Dominican Republic, she has not been able to find dignified work, for this reason she decided to start her own business.
She worked in the last few years selling basic grocery items, among other items. This loan that she is requesting is to invest in merchandise, such as rice, beans, oil, meat, supplies, etc.
Her dreams are that her children will be professionals and to have a location for her business.
Thank you very much for supporting the group "GS Asociacion Grupo 2" with their business vision.
