Minerva Mirabal 2 & 3 Group
In this Group: Enriketa, Maria, Tomasa, Sindry, Maria , Soraida, Marcelina, Santa, Evangelista, Dominga
Enriketa is the coordinator of her group 'Minerva Mirabal 2 & 3' (named after one of the famed trio of sisters who stood up to Dictator Rafael Trujillo and paid the ultimate price for doing so). This group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santo Domingo. Enriketa makes her home here in a simple structure with her four children. She says that her most important challenge is to finish studying. In the meantime, she plans to continue enjoying to sew.

Enriketa is excited to be taking her sixth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She has had her business for two years, starting when she received her first loan. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by buying goods for her little colmado (convenience store) where she sell rice, beans, sugar, flour, canned food, cooking oil, and vegetables. She will use the profits to reinvest in her business and finish building her home.

Enriketa began with us because she wanted to have a business. She is a young mother (she is wearing a pink blouse in the first photo). 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.
