Estrellas Brillantes 1 & 2 Group
In this Group: Rosa, Alejandrina, Lourdes, Jennifer, Mirtha, Veronica, Yasmili, Milody, Carmen, Cecilia
Rosa is the coordinator of Las Estrellas Brillantes (Shining Stars) Group 1 and 2, which consists of 10 micro-entrepreneurs from Samana. Samana is a tourist city located in the northeastern part of the country.

Rosa is the mother of two children. She lives with them and her long-term partner. She sells groceries at her food market, which is called a "colmado" in the Dominican Republic. There she sells daily meals to her neighbors.

She started her business almost eight years ago with her own savings. Now she is requesting her seventh loan. She will use this loan to buy flour, cooking oil, butter, rice, beans, sugar, and other goods. Previous loans have improved her business.

Rosa wants to save her profits to reinvest into her business, and build a house with a better structure than the one she currently has. Rosa and her group thank you all 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.
