Amistad 2,5 Group
In this Group: Antonia, Alejandrina, Francisca, Puro, Martina, Melida*, Porfiria, Minerva, Minelva, Esperanza
* not pictured
Antonia is the coordinator of her group Amistad (Friendship), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding El Seibo, an agricultural area where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with her husband and child.

Antonia is excited to be taking her tenth 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. She will be purchasing men's pants in the Capital, at the main market, and then re-selling them in her community for a profit. She will use the profits to invest in her home. She will be purchasing a bed, sheets and constructing a living room. Her long term goal is to own her own home. 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.
