Her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients in general. Her group is located in San Pedro de Macoris, a city famous for baseball players and sugar cane industries. Odalis makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their three children.

Odalis is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza. She has a miscellaneous sales business, where she sells shoes, cosmetics, clothing, and other merchandise. With this loan she will invest in her business by increasing her inventory, buying specially clothes because of Christmas sales.

Odalis's long-term goal is to have a successful business, and to provide for her family needs, starting with buying their own 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.
