Elise is a 37 year-old woman who lives with her 2 children (ages 2 and 10) in Padre Granero. Her husband, Alexi, works at a nearby store called “Casa Nelson” which sells clothing and household goods. This will be the 2nd loan for Elise, and she told us that she is very excited because her business has already improved so much over the past 6 months. She has been selling clothes for 15 years, but has never had the capital to expand or improve her business. Her dreams for the future are to own a home and a proper business.

For 10 of the women in Padre Granero this will be their 1st loan with Esperanza, and for the other 10 this will be their second. It has been such a joy and an honor for us to work with these women over the past 6 months, and we are excited to add more to the group. On behalf of Esperanza, thank you for continually supporting and encouraging these women. God Bless!

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.
