Lucia M. R. is a group coordinator for the group called “Mujeres Trabajando Contra La Pobreza,” which in English means Women Working Against Poverty. Lucia is the owner of a small convenience store, where she sells food items such as rice and oil to her community. This will be Lucia’s third loan with Kiva's partner Esperanza and she is hoping this one will improve her business as much as the first two did. Lucia has two grown children, one of whom lives with her and her husband, Gabriel M..


Lucia dreams of continual growth for her business and also continually learning skills through her business and her experience with Esperanza. She dreams that her grown children will have a good position in society and also be able to own their own businesses one day. Because of her faithfulness in repayment of her first two loans, Lucia has been able to receive more with this current loan. Lucia’s loan is for 15000 Dominican pesos (about $420).


On behalf of Lucia M. R., Mujeres Trabajando Contra La Pobreza and all of us here at Esperanza International, thank you 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.
