Shalom 5 & 6 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator of the “Shalom 5 & 6” group, located in the town of Hato Mayor, which is one of the most rural towns in the Dominican Republic, surrounded by mountains and lush vegetation.

Maria is running a business selling clothing. She is the mother of three children, but only one lives with her and her long term partner. She tells us that her most difficult challenge is to have her own house, built in a concrete block structure. Her most favorite activity is working and doing business. This is her 9th loan, after having repaid her previous loans satisfactorily. She has had her business for around six years, starting with the first loan she received from us.

Maria will use this loan to purchase jeans, shirts, underwear and women's clothes such as blouses, skirts, underwear and other items. She is planning to use her business profits to save because she wants to start building her house. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Maria, Coralia, Inocencia, Martina, Francisco, Leonor, Dieula, Previlia, Johanna, Pierre
