Manantial De Vida 1, 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Segunda is the coordinator of her group Manantial de Vida (Spring of Life) 1, 2, 3 & 4. Her group is located in Samana peninsula, an area of the Dominican Republic with a nascent tourism industry, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with her four children, and is a single mother. Segunda is excited to be taking her tenth loan with Kiva partner Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her clothing business by purchasing jeans, blouses, skirts, sock, t-shirt, etc. She will use the profits to save and to start building her house. Segunda's dreams are to see her children become professional and to live with her family in a safe and well-built home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Segunda, Luz, Marta, Alfida, Rosa*, Minerba, Maria, Isabel, Juana, Liduverky, Mercedes, Maria, Ana*, Monica, Luisa*, Felipa, Leopordina*, Carlixta, Ana, Noemis
