Vecinas Unidas 6 Group's story

Adelaida is the coordinator of her group, Vecinas Unidas (United Neighbors) 6. 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 her child.

Adelaida is excited to be taking her ninth 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 with a small grocery store, four years after she began running a little food market, where she sells daily food, like canned food, flour, sugar, rice and other goods. She will use the profits to provide for her family and to save. She will also save toward her dream to have her own home. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Adelaida, Lissette, Carlos, Francisca, Cirilo
