Day 12 for the Microfinance Team: Natalie’s Reflections

Lauren and Natalie (left to right)

The thing I enjoyed most about the microfinance program that was conducted during our time at the Dominican Republic was to see how eager the people that were to be part of our group were.  Coming into the Dominican we were not sure what to expect since our program’s schedule kept changing, and many times our day to day schedule had to adjust based upon the women’s and Ivelissa’s schedule.  But on the days we could meet up with them, tons of people came.  We were told to expect about 25 and over 50 people showed up.  When the next meeting came with only people who would truly be interested in the program and not just the money over 30 people still showed up to the presentations.  The people’s eagerness to learn was infectious and made our group want to do more to help.  And hopefully, in time and with our planned workshops and help we brought to Ivelissa the microfinance groups can succeed and all of the people involved can grow great businesses!    -Natalie
