Miguelina is a member of the group. She is an outgoing 30 year-old woman with one precious daughter and a drive to improve her economic situation. She owns a salon in her small community of Imbert, on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. With this loan she hopes to buy higher quality products, improve the appearance of the salon, and buy a new blow-dryer. When Miguelina isn’t working, she enjoys reading her Bible. Her favorite food is meat. In the future she hopes to have a proper home, and a safe place to raise her children.

Thank you Kiva lenders for supporting this amazing group of entrepreneurs!

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.
