Unidas Venceremos 3 Group's story

The women from group 3 of the Unidos Venceremos Bank of Hope are requesting their 7th loan through Esperanza International. They live in Samana, a peninsuL. located in northeast Dominican Republic. Samana is relatively an isolated and unexploited area of the country. Hence employment opportunities are scarce. The group members have worked very hard to establish their business through their previous micro loans and want to increase their sales volumes by buying new supplies with this loan.

Maribel A. is the group coordinator. She runs a small grocery store where she sells basic food supplies for daily cooking. She will use this loan to purchase rice, sugar and malted drinks, which are the items she sells the most. She's been sick recently for an extended period of time, which has led to a decrease in her sales. She hopes to recover soon and attend to her business without having to ask for help (she still doesn't make enough profits to hire staff). She also wants to make some improvements in the space where her store is located. She will work hard to continue paying her loans successfully, as she has done so far.

Please help us support these entrepreneurs through this Kiva loan. Thank you!
