Juana S. is a mother of three and lives in Santiago, a crowded city in the Dominican Republic. She lives in a community called Los Salados, where many women have taken out loans from Esperanza. Seeing these women use their loans to start new businesses has encouraged Juana to get involved as well, and she became a group leader.

This is Juana’s first loan, and she will use it to start her own small business. Juana plans to sell shoes. She will open a small street stall in her community and sell shoes to people on the streets. This small business will serve as supplementary income for family.

Juana is excited to embark on her new business venture. She is thankful for the opportunity to take out her micro-loan, because it will provide her with access to capital that she would not have otherwise had. She hopes this will be the first step along a path that will lead to a better life for her family.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
