Maria is the coordinator of her group Unidas con Cristo (Unite with Christ) 1, 2 & 3. This group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the sugarcane harvest and tourist industry dominate the economy. She is excited to be taking out her fifth loan.

She sells clothing, including pants, underwear, blouses, skirts, and shirts. She started this business with the first loan she took from Esperanza International. She will reinvest the profits in her business and provide for her children's school supplies.

Maria makes her home in a simple structure with her long-term partner and five of her eight children. She says that her most challenging goal is to acquire her own house.

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.
