In this Group: Celsa, Percida, Eva, Amelia, Ramon, Irene, Wendy, Dinora, Ana, Josefa
Celsa is a 48 year-old woman who lives with her three children in Luperon, Dominican Republic. When we arrived in Luperon she was behind her house killing chicken to supply the meat for her small restaurant that she runs. Celsa is famous for her Dominican soup, which has big chunks of fresh vegetables, chicken, and spices. She wants to use her loan to buy more food for her “comedor” including rice, live chicken, and vegetables. When Celsa isn’t working or caring for her children, she enjoys going to church and helping out in the community. She hopes that in the future she will have a bigger and nicer restaurant, and that she will be able to help the orphans in Luperon by making them lunch every day.


Thank you to all of the Kiva lenders who will help these entrepreneurs realize a better future!

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.
