Esmirna (G1,3) Group
In this Group: Olga, Betty, Maribel, Reyna, Josefina, Dominga, Sixta, Yolanda, Olga, Geraldo
Olga is the coordinator of her group Esmirna. Her story is representative of her group and generally of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti. Her group is located in La Romana, a rural area of the country dedicated to the sugar cane harvest, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She and her husband make their home here in a simple structure.

Olga is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothes and various other items. She intends to buy shoes, perfumes, and other products to sell. She will use the profits to make improvements to her house and will invest in the well-being of 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.
