I own a 70' cargo vessel and I export fresh fruits and vegitables from Puerto Plata to Provo, Caicos Islands and some of the southern Bahama islands. i have 2 companies; Fruta y Vegitales del Atlantico C por A and Agencia Maritimo del Atlantico C por A.
I also have a wharehouse in Jarabacoa/Constanza where I prepare the produce for shipment. I would like to know how I could go about raising money to purchase three trucks to transport the produce from the Cibao to puerto Plata and well as secure some operating capitol.
Raising capital for a business in the D.R. is normally done by either getting a partner or getting a loan from a bank. Banks have been very aggresive in the last couple of years in lending for vehicle purchases. However, interest rates are very high (20% +) compared to North American standards.
