Ana is the coordinator of her group La Integridad (The Integrity), 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 Samana peninsula, a lush, rugged isthmus with a nascent tourism industry, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure as a single mother with three children.

Ana is excited to be taK. her first loan with Esperanza and she is excited to invest in her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her ambulatory business selling underwear by travelling to the main market in the Capital to purchase underwear and then bring it back to her community to sell at a profit. She will use the profits to purchase medicine, school supplies, and a computer for her daughters. She also would like to save toward sealing the concrete blocks of her rented home and eventually buying it. 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.
