Juliana is the coordinator of her group Mano Amiga (Friendly Hand) 1, 2, 3 & 4, group comprised of 20 entrepreneurs from Samana peninsula, a lush, rugged area with a nascent tourism industry, where they all run their businesses. Juliana makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their two children.

Juliana is excited to be taking her 10th 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 selling clothing and Avon beauty products. She will purchase pants, shirts, skirts, creams, perfumes, and makeup in the capital and then bring her merchandise back to her community to sell. Some of her purchases are orders from clients, others she buys to sell. She is saving to finish building her house and this is how she will use the profits.

She is still dreaming of buying a scooter to make moving around with her merchandise easier and in order to travel to other communities. 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.
