Our Success Stories

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Necessity was truly the case for Linvor Ambo who wanted a faster way to enjoy traditional Dominican cocoa tea.
“ I wanted to make the tea in two steps or less. The traditional way was just to tedious or me.” 

And so through effort after effort, he found the winning formula and created his instant cocoa powder product, Choco Dominique. The 100 % natural product has no preservatives and is flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg and bay leaf.  

Making it is as easy as opening up the sachet, pouring it into a mug and adding hot milk or water and stirring.   

DEXIA has been offering support to Linvor from the start of the business.

Linvor Ambo

of Allorzee Ventures- Makers of Choco Dominique

Natasha Green is proud of her Kalinago heritage and wanted to make a contribution to the economic development of her community through heritage tourism. 
She started Tilou Kanawa during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and launched her restaurant and souvenir shop in her community of Salibya in late 2020. 

Tilou Kanawa (which means ‘little canoe’ in the Kalinago language) is a platform for Natasha to offer an additional experience for visitors to the home of Dominica’s first peoples.  

Normally, the community is highlighted as one of the must-stops, must-sees, it’s an indigenous community, a cultural hub, it continues to pursue and promote indigenous and community-based tourism and as an indigenous people we are highlighted on almost every magazine, every brochure, every website that Discover Dominica Authority promotes, and sadly when they do come to the community, there’s not much to see, there’s not much to experience and not much to eat.
