Mujeres Y Hombres 6| Group
In this Group: Ana, Patricia, Johanna, Leopordina, Maritza
Ana is the coordinator of her group Mujeres y Hombres (Women and Men). Her story is representative of both her group members and Esperanza's Haitian (many of whom recently moved from Haiti to the DR) and Dominican clients. Her group is based in the area surrounding Hato Mayor, a agricultural community which is centered around the sugarcane industry, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable at best. Here she makes her home with her child as a single mother.

Ana came to Esperanza because it offers very low interest rates and she successfully paid back two loans successfully. She is requesting this most recent loan to continue investing in her small variety store. With this loan she will purchase material for curtains and pants. With the profits from this loan she would like to invest in a plot of land on which to build her own home and to improve her life and the life of her daughter. 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.
