This month I have lent to:
La Excelencia en Cristo Group in the Dominican Republic
Refane and her group, La Excelencia en Cristo (pictured above), live and work in a rural community, called a batey, located in the eastern region of the Dominican Republic. Bateys are often located in the middle of vast sugarcane fields and function around the rise and falls of the harvest or dead season. In times where there is not much opportunity for work in the fields, Refane and her group depend on their small businesses to create an extra income source and balance out the cycles of agrarian life.

Arevik is 33 years and is a old retailer from Kapan. Arevik, together with her family, runs a stall where she sells fruits and vegetables. This stall is her family's main source of income. Arevik shares her living with her husband, 2 kids and parents-in-law. Arevik's stall stands out among others with affordable prices as well as polite service. Arevik has many customers and loves what she does for a living. She applied for this loan to pay for a stock of fruits and vegetables to sell on her stall. This will give her a chance to attract more clients and improve her family's accommodation.
