Eliana is the coordinator of her group Canal de Bendicion 6 & 8 (Channel of Blessing). Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where the economy is dominated by the sugarcane harvest. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her two children, taking care of them as a single mom.

Eliana is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and expanding her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling fried food, by buying chicken, beef, flour, oil, and plantains. She operates a fried food stand where she cooks dinners for sale. She is saving her profits to improve her home by building her future house out of concrete block, which will provide more security.

She enjoys being part of her group and sharing with them in different activities. Also her favorite thing to do is spend time with her two children.

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.
