Peniel Group 3
In this Group: Luchi, Tibisay, Brigida, Tania, Ramona
Luchi is the coordinator of the Banco D. Esperanza (Bank of Hope) Peniel. The group is located in the slums north of Santo Domingo, an area where electricity and running water (none of which is potable) are unreliable. She lives in a small house with her child.

Luchi currently runs a mobile business, selling jewelry, belts, and shoes in the streets. She will use this loan to purchase her merchandise in bulk at a lower price. This will help her support her family by bringing in greater profits. It will help her to work towards her dream of owning her own store and being an important businesswoman in her community. She thanks you all 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.
