Xiomara is the coordinator of Con Dios Adelante (Forward with God) 1 & 2. This group is made up of ten micro-entrepreneur women. The group is based in the city of La Romana, a rural area of the country dedicated to the harvest of sugarcane, in a batey (company town) founded for sugarcane workers, especially for Haitians. Xiomara lives with her long-term partner and her three children. She says that her most important challenges are to continue improving her business and to provide change for her family.

After her previous loans, her business is expanding and gaining more clients. Xiomara enjoys working and cooking for her family. She is running a sales business where she sells miscellaneous items such as cosmetics, shoes and clothes. She will use her loan to purchase many items to increase her business inventory. She is excited to receive her eighth loan with Esperanza. She has been part of this group for almost five years, and with each loan she has been able to improve her business. With her business profits, she saves and reinvests in her business when she needs to buy bigger orders. Xiomara 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.
