Margaritas Chimaltecas Group's story

The Friendship Bridge Trust Bank “Margaritas Chimaltecas” meets monthly with a Friendship Bridge facilitator who engages the ladies in an educational training after they make payments on their loans. The “Microcredit Plus” Program (education + small loans) gives the women essential tools to empower themselves & eliminate poverty. The ladies are beginning their very first loan cycle with KIVA investors & are quite excited! This trust bank is located in Chimaltenango, in the central highlands of Guatemala.

Suliana is a member of the group; she is 33 years old with 3 children who range in age from 1-13 years. She was able to stay in school until the 7th grade.

Suliana has a bookstore where she also offers photocopy services. She is requesting a loan to buy toner cartridges & other supplies.

Her dreams are to create more income, and invest in the education, health & nutrition of her family. KIVA investors, along with Friendship Bridge, will help make this possible for her. Then Suliana will invest her dedication and hard work!

Thank you, KIVA investors for partnering with Friendship Bridge for these women!
