Kiva Lending Team: Team Esperanza
We loan because...
We support Esperanza's work in the field. Esperanza is one of the few microfinance institutions that offers financial services to the 800,000+ Haitian-Dominicans living in the Dominican Republic.
We love Esperanza because this institution strives to reach the poorest and most isolated populations of the Dominican Republic, which is possible through their community banking model.
In addition to loans, Esperanza also provides its clients with additional complementary services:
- Vocational courses
- Dental treatment
- Preventative health trainings
- Literacy classes
- Basic entrepreneurial/business principles trainings
- And more!
