Trabajando Hacia El Bienestar 2 & 3 Group
Ana is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza. She has been doing business taking different loans, and now she feels stable having Esperanza´s loans. She plans to use this one to invest in her clothing sales, purchasing all kind of clothes.
This Esperanza associate began with us because she needed capital to develop her business and increase her household income. Her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's other Haitian and Dominican clients, many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti. Her group is located in Samana, a lush, rugged peninsuL. with a nascent tourism industry. This area, like nearly all impoverished areas of the Dominican Republic, suffers from unreliable electricity and running water (none of which is potable).
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.
