Dúo Los Cerritos Group's story

Josefina's from the town of Tecpan. She's 46 years old and responsible for her two minor children. She earns a living making traditional handwoven textiles.

She invested the loan she received in a purchase of more supplies to make her cloth, because when she was young she started with her handwoven traditional cloth business, which has allowed her to make progress with her children. Thankfully the textiles she makes always sell in the market. When there's not a lot of demand for textiles she makes napkins or other traditional clothing.

She dreams of further expanding her business and is asking Kiva for another loan so she can continue to invest as a way to earn more income to send her children to school for a better future.

She hopes to receive another Kiva loan to make more textiles to sell.
