Creativas 1 & 2 Group's story

Maritza lives in Santo Domingo, in one of the poorest communities surrounding the main city of the Dominican Republic. Maritza and her group of 10 members are taking loans for their businesses. This group is named Creativas 1 & 2 (Creatives).

Maritza requires a loan to buy fruit and vegetables. She also wants to buy a big box of second hand clothes. She runs a fruit and vegetables stall in front of her house, and she also sells second hand cloths by walking. She has had her business for over 6 years, after a friend gave her a loan to buy vegetables, and after some months she decided to sell fruit. After hearing from Esperanza, she saw the opportunity to start selling second hand clothes. Her most difficult challenges have been to overcome economy crisis, and low income. She is mom of 4 children.

She says that her favorite thing is to work, and she wants to attend to the church. Maritza and her group are thankful for your support!

In this group: Maritza, Petronila, Minerva, Virginia, Maritza, Cristina*, Raquel, Teresa, Yesenia, Francisca
