Vecinas Unidas Group's story

Regina is the coordinator of her group, Vecinas Unidas (United Neighbors). This group is located in the lush, rugged Samana peninsula, an area with a nascent tourism industry, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity is unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple, rented structure with her long-term partner and two children.

Regina is excited to be taking her eighth 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 selling jewelry by purchasing earrings, necklaces and bracelets for her store.

She will use the profits to provide for her family and to save. She will also save towards her dream of building her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Regina, Juana, Eneroliza, Mariluz, Jackelin, Apolonia, Juliana, Berkis, Constancia, Yunior, Francisco, Martina, Carlos, Teresa, Adelaida
