Yaquelin is the coordinator of El Tesoro (The treasure), a group maD. up of thirty micro-entrepreneurs. This group is located in the city of La Romana, a rural area of the country dedicated to the sugar cane harvest, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable.

Yaquelin lives with her long-term partner and three children, and operates a colmado, a grocery store, run in a neighborhood whose people buy their daily meals. She will use this loan to purchase goods like rice, sugar, beans, cooking oil, and canned food to increase her store's inventory.

She is excited to receive her fifth loan with Esperanza and her group, as with each loan she has been able to improve her business, making it possible for her to proviD. for her family's needs and introduce different products to her children. She says that her moS.difficult challenge is to continue improving her business and help to proviD. for her children's education. She enjoys working in her little store and her dream is to have a big grocery store or a supermarket.

She thanks all of you for your support of her business and her group.

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.
