Nuevo Progreso 7 Group's story

Carmen is the coordinator of her group, Nuevo Progreso (New Progress) 7. Her group is located in the lush, rugged Samana peninsula, an area with a nascent tourism industry. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her four children.

Carmen plans to send her children to school, which is the reason why she is working hard, selling clothes from her house and by walking in her community and others nearby. She is excited to be taking her 18th loan with Kiva field partner Esperanza International, after having successfully repaid her previous loans and growing her business. She has increased her business, which she started with her first loan, when she sold a small quantity of clothes and other products. Now she sells more and sometimes she sells different products to expand her sales.

As a member of Esperanza, Carmen joined this borrower group that includes some of her very good friends. She says all of them are hard workers and dedicated to their businesses. She dreams of having a successful and established business. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Carmen, Maria, Pedro, Yomary, Robertina
