Maura is one of the members of 'Minerva Mirabal group 1' (named after one of the legendary Mirabal sisters who resisted and were killed by the dictator Trujillo). Her group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santo Domingo. These five women are dedicated to working hard and developing their business to bring changes to their families.

She makes her home here in a simple structure with her three children. Maura is excited to be taking out her 6th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She runs a business selling bacon and sausage and this loan is to invest in purchasing pork and beef to prepare salted meat and pork sausage. She will use the profits to cover her home expenses and to reinvest in her business. 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.
