Amanda is a member of the Mujeres De Sueños y Metas (Women of Dreams and Goals ) 1 & 2 group. This group is comprised of ten women with small businesses who sell different products. Amanda is a single mother with three children. They live in the city of Santo Domingo. She has always worked hard to give her children what she was not able to have in her childhood.

Amanda’s business is a butcher shop. She sells different types of meat like chicken, pork, and beef. She has been working in this business for about five years. This is her 8th loan with Esperanza Internancional. She is very grateful because she has been able to advance and invest in her business with the loans. She will use this new loan to buy more beef, chicken and some pigs.

This group is located in an area with scant resources in the city of Santo Domingo. It is to the north of the city.

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.
