Dominga plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying vegetables and fruits. She has had her business for six years, starting after the first loan she received from Esperanza. Her group is located in the rural area surrounding Hato Mayor, an agricultural area. She makes her home here in a simple house with her long-time partner and five of the eight children they have. She says that her most difficult challenge is to raise her children. In the meantime, she enjoys doing business. She plans to continue to enjoy work most of the time. She is dreaming of seeing her children become professional and good people.

Dominga is excited to be taking out her 12th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanded her business. She will save her profits to reinvest in her business. Dominga is the coordinator of her group El Samaritano ("The Samaritan").

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.
