Amada is the group coordinator and president of Banco D. Esperanza (Bank of Hope) Mujeres Con SueƱos y Metas (Women with Dream and Goals) which is starting its first loan cycle with Esperanza. She resides in the Northern slums of Santo Domingo, an area where both electricity and water services (none of which is potable) are unreliable. In addition she shares her small house with seven other individuals including her husband and three children.

With this loan she hopes to open her own butcher shop to serve her community. She intends to put the profits she gains from the butcher shop towards imporving her home, seeing her children educated to become professionals and finally towards her own education. Amadas long term dream is to study family psychology and she is hoping that with the new income from her butcher shop she will be able to see her dreams fulfilled. She thanks you all for your support.

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.
