La Restauracion (Restoration) Group's story

Santiago is middle aged man who lives with his wife and four children in the farming town of Hato Mayor, in the Dominican Republic. He has asked for this loan to buy used and new clothing for his small business; in his community there are no businesses that sell both new and used clothing, so demand is often higher than what he afford to supply. This loan will allow him to buy a larger quantity of clothing, and consequently, earn more income.

His biggest challenge right now is to enjoy his health while he has it by walking, and taking time to enjoy being active, as well as being able to pay for his five children to continue studying. He says his dream is to own his own house, own his own land plot to put his business on, and to one day in the near future have enough savings to buy his own vehicle or motorcycle.
