Progreso Hacia Adelante 2 Group
In this Group: Altagracia, Maria, Dilsia, Yohany, Antonio
Altagracia is a member of the “Progreso Hacia Adelante 2” (Progress Forward 2) group which includes four women and one man who are micro entrepreneurs in the city of San Pedro D. Macoris, a city in eastern Dominican Republic, surrounded by sugar cane fields and the Caribbean Sea. Her community, like many others, lacks potable water, reliable electric power and adequate public transportation access.

Altagracia, 59, spends days fiercely dedicated to her business from very early in the morning on when she goes out to make the purchases her business requires because it’s a food stand, specifically fast, fried food, a popular dinner option in the rural low-income neighborhoods and communities. It’s called Fritura and she sells all kinds of food like, chicken, beef, plantain, turnovers (meat, vegetables or cheese covered by two deep fried dough crusts), among other dishes, especially of local consumption. She plans to use the loan to buy ingredients or foods already mentioned.

She is currently single and she tells us that she loves working and serving others. Her great challenge is to have a tranquil and secure old age so that she can rest. She expresses her own and her group’s gratituD. to everyone for their support. Thank you.

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.
