Ysabel is the coordinator of the 'Mujeres Poderosas 3' (Powerful Women 3) group. Each of the group's members carries out her own business activity every day in the city of Puerto Plata. This is a city whose main businesses are tourism and a rum factory. The property sector is also strong in this city. These are the main sources of work. The ladies in this group mainly sell jewelry, clothes, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, food and other miscellaneous products.

Ysabel's family is made up of herself, her husband and her son. As a mother, she tells us that her greatest difficulty is going out to work and having to leave her son at home alone without her attention. For this reason, she works in her own business which allows her to spend more time at home looking after her son. Ysabel's favorite activity is going to church and sharing with her fellow group members.

Ysabel runs a business selling shoes and jewelry. She saw the need for someone to sell gold jewelry in her community and other nearby communities and she started selling these products gradually. After having received five loans from Esperanza she is now able to sell shoes as well. Ysabel will invest this loan in both lines of products, devoting 50% of her loan to each. She would like to have a stable business, with her own premises, and for it to be sustainable. One of her future plans is to build these premises as well as her own home. Thank you for everything.

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.
