Martina J. is the bank coordinator for the Bank of Hope "Fuerza Divina", which has 9 groups of 5 members each. Three groups are participating in this loan. Martina has 3 children, ages 29, 2 and 3. Martina sells all kinds of clothes in Hato Mayor.

Martina has received four loans from Esperanza; this would be her fifth. The first loans made it possible for her to expand her business. Her monthly sales have increased, so she needs this loan to replenish her business and be able to have more stock to offer her growing clientele. Martina hopes that she one day will be able to buy a nice house to live in and a place where she can set up her own clothing store.

With your help, Martina will be one step closer to accomplishing her dreams. Thank you for supporting this loan!

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.
