Unidos Venceremos Group
In this Group: Ninita, Cruz , Vilten, Bertha, Dolsi , Paricia, Maria, Cimione, Jeanette, Dieulane
Ninita is the coordinator of her group Unidos Venceremos (United we will overcome), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in an agricultural community based around the sugarcane industry on the outskirts of La Romana, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long term partner and their four children.

Ninita is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans without problems. She plans to use this loan to invest in her "colmado" (a small corner store which sells the basic necessities) by purchasing rice, beans, sugar and soda to sell to her clients. She will use the profits to continue investing in her business, with the goal of creating a larger more sustainable business that will provide a steady stream of income for her family. 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.
