La Union Hace La Fuerza 1 Group
In this Group: Guillermina, Mireni, Rolene , Nelina, Yoselin
Guillermina is the coordinator of her group La Union Hace La Fuerza (Union Makes Strength), 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 La Romana, where the economy is dominated by the sugarcane harvest and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her common-law husband and their child.

Guillermina is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing and beauty products by purchasing more merchandise. She will use the profits to buy school supplies for her son with the goal of sending him to university some day. 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.
