Corral Chiquito H Group's story

Seven entrepreneurial women make up the Friendship Bridge Trust Bank "Corral Chiquito" located in the Guatemalan state of Huehuetenango. Their vision is to create better lives for their families by developing successful businesses with the help of small loans. They are beginning their 1st loan with Kiva investors.

A member of the group, who is also a nurse, is 34-year-old Roxana who has 3 children aged 3 to 19 years old. Her two eldest children are enrolled in high school & in university. She has a very popular business preparing chicken with a rich tomato sauce called adobo. Her product is well known & she sells it to different restaurants in her area. Now she has a large order necessitating more investment into her business. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy chicken, tomatoes, onions & spices in bulk.

With the loan support of Kiva investors, along with monthly educational meetings, Roxana learns practical lessons in budgeting, saving & investing. She can use these lessons to grow her business. These are part of the Friendship Bridge's "Microcredit Plus" program of loans + education that provide Roxana & her friends with development tools as well as opportunities to create brighter futures for their families. Thank you Kiva & Friendship Bridge!!!
