Gladis is the coordinator of her group El Futuro (The Future)1 & 2. Her group is located in the areas surrounding La Romana, an area economically dominated by the sugarcane harvest. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her husband.

Gladis is excited to be taking her third 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. She runs a Colmado (a food store selling daily meals). The loan will allow her to buy rice, beans, canned food, sugar, vegetables, cooking oil, etc. She will use the profits to save and reinvest in her business.

She said that her most difficult challenge has been to establish her business and improved it. Her dream is to have a supermarket and to like safe and tranquil at her home. She thanks you all for your support.

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.
