El Progreso 3 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator from the group named El Progreso (The Progress) 3. This group is located in El Seybo, Dominican Republic, in a rural community. Maria lives with her long term partner and three children in a batey located in the north of EL Seybo ("bateyes" are small rural communities built by sugar companies for their field workers).

Maria operates a small fuel sale stall where she sells gasoline and other fuel to her clients and people who drive down the main street of the community. She operates her business during all day from her small stall on the side of the street just in front of her house. She sells it by half-bottle, litter, and gallon.

Maria is requesting a loan to purchase more fuel to increase her inventory. This is her 13th loan and she has been able to bring changes to her family’s life such as providing school supplies, shoes, clothing and tending to other needs. She will uses her business profits to reinvest into her business and to save. Maria thanks you for your support.

In this group: Maria, Agueda, Francisco, Sandra, Alfida
