Altagracia's story

Altagracia is in her late twenties, and she and her husband have five school-going children. Her husband is a mechanic and he has his own shop. Altagracia, the entrepreneur, lives in Chácaro, in the community of Yamasá.

Altagracia dedicates herself to the selling of an assortment of natural and silk flowers. She started this business six months ago with a loan she obtained from FSMA. The natural flowers Altagracia offers to the customers are carefully picked from healthy bushes of Santo Domingo, the capital.

After wholesale purchasing them, Altagracia has to dedicate a lot of time to prepare the bouquets within her house. After, she visits other women in the neighborhood to sell her products.

Altagracia would like to rent a small locale where she can run the business. Meanwhile, she will keep walking the streets to sells the flowers. With her loan, Altagracia will buy more artificial and natural flowers in order to increase her sales volume and thus her income.
