Shalom 6 & 7 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator of the "Shalom 6 & 7” 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, cosmetics, shoes and other products. She is the mother of a child, and she lives with her child's father. She tells us that her most difficult challenge is to have a successful business. She is dreaming to have a very large general store in her community, a store where she can sell to wholesalers. Her most favorite activity is attending to her business. This is her 14th loan, after having repaid her previous loans satisfactorily. She has been in business for around seven years, having begun selling cosmetics with some saving she had.

Maria will use this loan to purchase jeans, shirts, underwear, cosmetics, shoes, jewelry and other miscellaneous products. She is planning to use her business profits to save, because she wants to have capital to invest more in her business inventory and maybe the local. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Maria, Nicenia, Gullermina, Pierre*, Previlia, Ruth, Flor, Carmen, Julio, Isabel*
