Ebenezer 3 Group
In this Group: Linda, Jean, Eliberto, Michealine, Guerline
Linda is the coordinator of her group Ebenezer, 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 urban slums surrounding Santiago, an area known for its tobacco production, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure.

Linda is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her mobile business selling clothing by purchasing pants, t-shirts and dress shirts to sell. She will use the profits to save towards her goal of purchasing a motorcycle to help her transport and sell her goods. 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.
