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).

Dieu D'abraham De Meyak 2 & 3 Group's story

Lucien is the coordinator of the Dieu d'Abraham group, in Meyak. He lives in the town of Meyak, Haiti, where electricity is scarce and the water supply is strictly limited. He is not married, and has two children.

Lucien has been running his business for the last 6 years. Before that, he was in school. He would like to use this loan to invest in the purchase of food products. Lucien hopes that this loan will help him expand his business. The other group members need the loan for business activities such as selling coal, rice, and used clothing.

According to Lucien, his greatest challenge is the lack of a steady flow of customers. His main goal is to expand his business. He dreams of buying a truck to transport merchandise.

In this group: Lucien, Nelta, Widlaine, Sylvane, Mimose, Dulta, Ivonie, Ella, Monise, Sansiona
