Shalom 3 & 5 Group's story

Maria is the coordinator of the “Shalom 3 & 5” 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 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 finish building her own house. Her favorite activities are working and doing business.

Maria has been running a business selling clothing for around seven years, since receiving her first loan from us. This will be her 13th loan, having repaid her previous ones satisfactorily. Maria will use it to purchase jeans, shirts, underwear and women's clothes such as blouses, skirts, underwear, etc.

Maria is planning to save her profits to build her house and make plans for her future. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Maria, Maria, Leidy, Gloria, Natividad, Carmen, Margarita, Agripina*, Ramona*, Inocencia
