En Dios Confiamos 4 Group
In this Group: Milciades, Alicia, Antonio, Wiselander, Altagracia
Milciades is the coordinator of his group En Dios Confiamos 4 (In God we trust), and his story is representative of his group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti) clients generally. His group is located in San Pedro de Macoris, a city famous for baseball players and sugar cane industries. The main economic activity in the city is the Free Trading Zone, a cement factory, and others. Both running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable there. Milciades makes his home here in a simple structure with his long term partner and two children.

Milciades is excited to be taking his first loan with Esperanza, to improve in his business raising pigs to sell when they grow up. He plans to use this loan to invest in his business, buying more pigs to raise and sell. He will use the profits to build his home in a stronger structure from wood to concrete block. He 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.
