Dominga is a member of Grupo Mujeres de Fe 1, 2 & 3 (Women of Faith Groups 1, 2 & 3) in the city of Puerto Plata, where the economy depends on the rum industry, as well as the tourist and real estate sectors. It was the first tourist destination in the Dominican Republic and one of the largest sugar-producing cities. However, there is also a shortage of drinking water and electricity available to the the Dominicans and Haitian immigrants there. Dominga makes a living selling women's cosmetics and running a study hall, where kids do their homework and learn to get more out of it. Dominga is married and has three children, and she tells us that her biggest challenge has been raising her kids. She really likes to cook, which is her favorite activity of her day. She is very excited to receive her second loan from Kiva partner Esperanza Internacional after having paid her previous loan satisfactorily and taking steps to grow her business. She has had her business for about 13 years, and she started out selling the island's best known brand-name products via catalog and opened the study hall after graduating with an education degree from the university. She is planning to invest the new loan in the purchase of 10 school chairs and a big blackboard as well as different cosmetic products, perfume and other items. She plans to use her profits to finish construction on her home, which still needs to be plastered. Her dream is to have a school, where people can study any course or grade, and be a blessing to her community.

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.
