Susana is one of the members of the Group Dios es Mi Pastor 3 & 4 (God is My Shepherd), located in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. This group is located in one of the rural areas called Batey, populated by Haitian immigrants who came to the country to work in the sugar field plantation. Most of the members in this group are Haitian citizens.

Susana, who sells miscellaneous products such as clothing, shoes, cosmetics, and accessories, is very excited to receive her 12th loan from Esperanza International, after having repaid her previous loans and thus taken a step towards expanding her business. With this loan, she is planning to purchase more inventory.

Susana tells us that her most important challenge and goal is to set up a store where she can sell all of her items instead of going outside and walking in her communities and others nearby. She enjoys being at home with her long-term partner and five children; right now just two of them live with her and their father. She is planning to reinvest her profits in her business and save for her future plans and challenges. She thanks all of you 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.
