Hot Tip: Start A Business in The Dominican Republic

Consider this little nugget from the New York Post:

The Mets donated $25,000 to Esperanza International to assist 500 families interested in starting a business during a ceremony at their training facility in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

$25,000 to help 500 families start businesses? Unless I am totally reading this wrong or completely forgot how to do simple division, that works out to $50 bucks a family! $50 bucks will start you a business in the Dominican? I know that the DR is kind of an impoverished country, but that is really surprising.

If anyone out there wants to cure me of some ignorance, and educate me a bit on this, please post a note in the comments section.
