DR Trip Part 2

To read part one, scroll down or click here.

The first entrepreneur we were able to visit with and see her business was a woman from the bank meeting (see previous post). She and her husband have 3 small children, and from what we could tell her husband commuted to work a distance away from their community. Her business was that of a food stand of sorts. A mini-market filled with snack items, drinks, and cooking goods. This woman’s face came alive when she told us about her business- what she does, how she gets the supplies, what it has meant to her family. As we were talking with her she pointed out the concrete house in construction next to her mini-market. With her savings from her business, she and her husband are able to build a better house for their family.
