Salud Group
In this Group: Ludin Damary, Digna Xiomara, Esteberta
Esteberta, 46, belongs to Grupo Solidario Salud and is the single mother of a daughter. She is hardworking and wants to succeed so that she can keep helping her daughter and grandchildren. She started her business three years ago while working at a cafeteria; she decided to go out on her own and risk the challenges ahead.

She now manages her cafeteria by herself, working from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm. Paying rent for the space is a disadvantage for Esteberta. She is applying for a loan to buy ingredients to make candies. The loan will allow her to keep supporting her family. Her business goal is to own her space and not rent; her dream is to own a house. This is Esteberta's sixth loan cycle with FAMA, and she has made her payments on time.

Ella inicio su negocio desde hace tres años cuando trabajaba en una cafetería y decidió emprender una actividad por su propia cuenta arriesgándose a enfrentar todos los retos y desafíos, en la actualidad tiene una cafetería la cual atiende ella sola y su horario de atención al cliente comienza desde las 7:00 am y culmina a las 8:00 pm.

Con el apoyo de este préstamo podrá seguir teniendo una fuente de ingresos para su familia. Su meta para su negocio es poder tener su propio local y ya no seguir alquilando, su sueño es tener su propia casa. Doña Esteberta ha recibido el apoyo de FAMA durante 6 ciclos los cuales los ha cancelado de forma puntual.

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.
