Women weavers, entrepreneurs find strength in numbers in Guatemala
This is the first in our ‘Invest in her, invest in change’ series celebrating the power of women entrepreneurs around the world. Join Kiva in crowdfunding $1 million in loans to women by International Women’s Day on March 8.
In a rural community near Tecpan, Guatemala, live 9 women with unique businesses, ranging from weaving to agriculture, who joined together to create the lending group Las Girasoles Tecpanecas (the Tecpan Sunflowers). Read the stories of the amazing women who make up this lending group at Kiva's Medium page.
