Kiva Lending Team: Team Esperanza - DR and Haiti
We loan because...
We support Esperanza's work in the field. Esperanza is one of the few microfinance institutions that operates both in the Dominican Republic and in Haiti, and is the only Kiva Field Partner that provides services directed toward Haitian entrepreneurs, both in Haiti and in the Dominican Republic – it is estimated that there are approximately 800,000 Haitian-Dominicans living in the Dominican Republic.
We love Esperanza because this institution strives to reach the poorest and most isolated populations of Haiti and Dominican Republic, which is only viable through their village bank-focused structure.
In addition to traditional business loans, Esperanza also provides its clients with:
- Vocational training
- Dental treatment and preventative training
- Loans and health training to borrowers living with HIV and AIDS
- Literacy training
- And many more services!
