Mauricia is the coordinator of her group "Desarrollo Para el Progreso" 1 & 2 (Development for progress). She is excited to be taking her 6th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She has had her business for around 3 years, starting when she took her first loan with Esperanza Internacional. This group is taking loans to improve their businesses and their lives. They are located in the urban slums surrounding Samana.

Mauricia has 3 children. They live tranquilly in one of the rural villages around the city of Samana. The children are studying, and one of the biggest challenges for Mauricia is to help her children to develop and be prepared for their future. She said her favorite activities are attending church and serving to the Lord.

Mauricia makes natural juices. She will use this loan to buy pineapples, oranges, lemons, cherries, passion fruit, sugar and vanilla. She sells the juice in her house and by the gallon. She thanks all of you for such amazing 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.
