In this Group: Mariemichel, Bellamy, Wislande, Dorvilus, Andre, Phanord, Anaise, Grace, Meciline, Gertrice
Marie came to our office with her precious 1-year old son and 9 other women from her community to learn more about the loans that we could give them. She has lived in Basurero, on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, with her husband and two children for 15 years. Her husband works in a small jewelry shop, but she has not been able to work because of her two small children, and the lack of opportunity. With this loan she wants to buy clothes, shoes, and hair products to sell in her community. Her dream is that if her and her husband work hard they can provide a better life for their children, and send them to University.

Esperanza is so privileged to work with these women, and we want to thank Kiva lenders for their support. 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.
