Fuerza Divina 6 Group's story

Ana Belkis P. is the group coordinator for Group 6 of the "Fuerza Divina" (Divine Force) Bank of Hope, in El Seybo, in northeast Dominican Republic. This group has 5 members.

Ana has 2 small businesses; in one she sells clothes, especially undergarments for all ages and sleepwear. Her other business is selling fried meat-filled pastries and fried plantains. She has 4 children at present; ages 16, 11, 8 and 6. She had a 5th son who passed away some time ago. She says overcoming the death of her child has been one of her biggest trials in life.

Ana is striving to stabilize both of her businesses in order to help her children get ahead in life and study. She believes her businesses will allow her to accomplish her dreams and acquire a higher sense of realization with her remaining children that will ease the pain of the loss of her son.

This is a struggling mother who is an example of everyday courage to all her community and her group peers. Thank you for supporting these entrepreneurs!
