Mujeres Creciendo En Fe Group
In this Group: Juana, Asa, Zury , Wander , Stephanie
Juana is the coordinator of her group, Mujeres Creciendo en Fe (Women Growing in Faith), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients generally (many of whom recently emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti). Her group is located in the urban slums that surround Santo Domingo, a crime-ridden area where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner.

Juana is excited to be taking her first loan with Kiva partner, Esperanza, and having the opportunity to grow her business with low-cost capital. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business running a small fried food stand, by purchasing ingredients such as dough, plantains, cheese, sugar and juice. She will use the profits to invest in her home by adding tiles to her floor, as well as saving towards constructing an additional house on her property to lease out to proviD. a steady income. She thanks you all 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.
