Ana María
Ana, 25, is single and lives with her parents in Sololá. She makes and sells traditional, hand-embroidered garments. She chose this profession because her mother trained her in the techniques as a young girl. Ana has been making garments for two years as a way to contribute to the family finances.

She is requesting a loan of Q 4,000.00 to buy materials to make traditional, hand-embroidered garments. She will offer her customers more selection and increase her profits. One of her dreams is to have a space for her business.

ADICLA's youth entrepreneurship loans allow young people without prior credit histories to borrow in groups, an opportunity that is not offered by many other microfinance institutions in Guatemala. The loans will be used to help them start small businesses.


ADICLA (Association for the Holistic Development of the Basin of Lake Atitlán) is nonprofit rural community development association that provides small loans and services to improve quality of life in two of the poorest regions of Guatemala, home to large indigenous populations. Kiva funding will be used to support three innovative credit initiatives: youth business loans, green loans, and smaller loans to help ADICLA move down-market and serve poorer clients.
