Mujeres De Suenos Y Metas 2 Group
In this Group: Cipriana, Lidia, Paulina, Anatalia, Leonor
Cipriana is the coordinator for the group “Mujeres de Sueños y Metas 2” (Women with Dreams and Goals 2). Her family consists of her four children and her partner who is the father of her children. They live in Santo Domingo in one of the poorest communities located north of the city. This community is in a rural area.


Cipriana is extremely excited about receiving her fourth loan from Esperanza International. She manages a fast food business from a stand in front of her house. Her specialty is fried food. She plans to invest her new loan in the purchase of supplies such as chicken, plantains, oil, charcoal, and a pot for cooking. Her earnings are being saved for the future so that she can open a small restaurant in her community, otherwise known as a “comedor” in the Dominican Republic. This is one of her dreams along with having a nice house where she can rest and live securely.


The group started with Esperanza because of the flexible payments and low interest rate. Cipriana’s story is representative of the other members of her group and clients of Esperanza. They are Haitians (most of whom have emigrated to the Dominican Republic from Haiti, some just recently) and Dominicans who live in poor communities that lack potable water and reliable electricity.

Cipriana es la coordinadora del Grupo Mujeres de suenos y metas 2. Su familia está compuesta por 4 hijos y su pareja, el cual es el padre de sus hijos. Viven en la ciudad de Santo Domingo, en una de las comunidades de mas escasos recursos ubicada al norte de la ciudad, en unas de sus comunidades rurales.

Cipriana está muy emocionada de recibir su cuarto préstamo en Esperanza Internacional. Ella opera un negocio de venta de comida rápida, en un puesto frente a su casa, su especialidad es comidas fritas. Va a invertir este nuevo préstamo en la compra de ingredientes como pollo, plátanos, aceite, carbón, un caldero para cocinar. Sus ganancias van a ser ahorradas para poder en un futuro poder tener un pequeño restaurante en su comunidad, lo que en República Dominicana le llaman un comedor. Este es uno de sus suenos al igual que pode tener una buena vivienda, donde pueda descansar y vivir segura.

Está asociada de Esperanza comenzó con nosotros porque las cuotas de pagos son más flexibles y a un menor interés. Su historia está siendo usada para representar a los demás miembros de su grupo y a los clientes de Esperanza, tanto los haitianos (quienes en su mayoría ha emigrado hacia la República Dominicana desde Haití, algunos de ellos recientemente) y los dominicanos, quienes por lo general viven en comunidades muy pobres, esta zona, como muchas otras zonas de escasos recursos en la República Dominicana, carecen de agua potable y energía eléctrica constante.

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.
