* not pictured
Mimose is the coordinator of her group Rosa de Saron (Rose of Saron). 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 the areas surrounding Puerto Plata on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, an area famous for natural beauty and its tourism industry. In this area, running water is not potable and electricity is unreliable (outside of the all-inclusive resorts). Mimose makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband.

Mimose is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing in the main markets of her community. She plans to purchase shoes, pants and underwear to sell. She will use the profits to invest in completing construction of her home, as well as saving towards buying a small motorcycle to help her with her business. 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.
