Fuerza Divina 6 Group
In this Group: Ana, Maria , Cruz, Antonia, Jose
Ana Belkis P. is the group coordinator for Group 6 of the "Fuerza Divina" (Divine Force) Bank of Hope, in El Seybo, in northeast Dominican Republic. This group has 5 members.

Ana has 2 small businesses; in one she sells clothes, especially undergarments for all ages and sleepwear. Her other business is selling fried meat-filled pastries and fried plantains. She has 4 children at present; ages 16, 11, 8 and 6. She had a 5th son who passed away some time ago. She says overcoming the death of her child has been one of her biggest trials in life.

Ana is striving to stabilize both of her businesses in order to help her children get ahead in life and study. She believes her businesses will allow her to accomplish her dreams and acquire a higher sense of realization with her remaining children that will ease the pain of the loss of her son.

This is a struggling mother who is an example of everyday courage to all her community and her group peers. Thank you for supporting these 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.
