Mujeres Valientes 1 Group's story

Santa is the coordinator of her group, Mujeres Valientes (Brave women) 1, located in the rural area surrounding La Romana. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their three children.

Santa is excited to be taking her second loan with Kiva partner Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business where she sells chicken, pork and corn bread by purchasing various pounds of them. She will use the profits to buy a battery for her power generator, and to save to buy her own house. She said that her most difficult challenge is to travel, as she would like to visit other countries like Hawaii. Her future plans are to have her house and to travel to different countries.

She started doing her business almost two years ago with some money she saved, and she is taking Esperanza´s loan because they are comfortable to do business with. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Santa, Maritza, Francia, Mireya, Betty
