Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Dios Proveera 4,5,6 Group's story

Monica is the coordinator of her group Dios Proveera (God will provide), and her story is representative of her group and of Esperanza's Haitian and Dominican clients (many of whom recently emigrated to the DR from Haiti). Her group is located in the rural areas surrounding La Romana, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long term partner and their two children.

Monica is excited to be taking her second loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business selling clothing by purchasing blouses, pants, sheets, and skirts.

She will use the profits to save toward her goal of owning her own home.

In this group: Monica, Erismena, Maximo, Andreina, Fela , Milagros , Francisca, Susana, Emilia, Celisa
