Mujeres Trabajando Contra La Pobreza Group's story

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!

In this group: Lucia, Severina, Olguita, Anasilvia, Leonarda, Medeline, Vanesa, Fifa, Benita, Dominga, Maria, Maria, Dallery, Trinidad, Antonia
