Creciendo Por La Union Group
In this Group: Momsy, Viviana, Anne, Mireille, Secrete, Marguerite, Solaneta, Dalina, Aphuse, Edwis
Momsy is a vivacious 23-year-old who lives with her husband, Miguel, and their two children (ages: 6, 8). She has lived in Puerto Plata since she was a child and loves her country. Momsy sells used shoes and clothing out of a small addition to her home, and she works very long days trying to make enough money to support her family. She told us that her favorite foods are the most popular ones here in the DR: rice, beans, and meat. She hopes that one day she will have enough money to own her own home and business, and that her children will have a good life.

Most of the women in Batay la Union have moved here from Haiti, in search of more opportunity and a better life. A micro-loan is often times the only “break” they get in their lives, and it gives them a chance work hard and accomplish something on their own. On behalf of Esperanza, and this entire group of women, we want to thank you 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.
