Luz is the coordinator of her group Pena Alta en Desarrollo (High Rock in Development) 1, 2, 3. Her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally, many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti. Her group is located in the rural area surrounding Hato Mayor, an agricultural area where crime is rampant and where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their three children.

Luz is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing clothes, shoes and calling cards. She operates a miscellaneous store. She will use the profits to buy some calves to raise and sell. She wants to have a big home for her whole family. She thanks you all for your support.

One of the people in the picture is not an active member active of the group, but was the founder (the one wearing white clothes at the right)

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.
