In this Group: Claudia, Matildes, Adela, Estebania, Marda, Cruz, Mercedes, Santa, Elicet, Nanci, Ana, Elena, Maribel, Anyelisa, Alesandra
Claudia lives in Samana, in the eastern part of the Dominican Republic. She has raised three wonderful children (ages: 25, 22, and 20) and now focuses on her small “colmado” business, which provides much needed necessities to her community. She wants to use this loan to buy more rice, beans, sugar, bread, and milk for her store. When Claudia has free time, she enjoys going to church and talking with the other women in her community.


This will be Claudia’s 5th loan with Esperanza, and we hope that more women in her community will follow her example. On behalf of these women and Esperanza, thank you for your support and generosity!

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.
