Mujeres Victoriosas Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy an iron stove, a gas cylinder, and corn in bulk.

Mujeres Victoriosas Group's story

The partnership between Kiva investors and Friendship Bridge has created a dynamic program called "Microcredit Plus". The program provides loans and education, serves more than 22,000 clients, and provides them with valuable training in health, nutrition, self-esteem, women's rights, and good business skills.
All the women belong to a Trust Bank, and can participate in "Health for Life".

The Trust Bank "Mujeres Victoriosas" is located in a city of the state/department of Quiché. There are 7 industrious women, who have small businesses selling prepared food and tortillas 3 times per day, or selling second hand clothing. Now they begin their second loan cycle with Kiva.

The group's secretary is 37-year-old Yojana, who also has a secretary certificate. She is a single mother of a 9-year-old son, who is attending the 3rd grade.
Yojana makes and sells tortillas from her home 3 times per day. She wants to increase her business, so she is requesting a loan to buy an iron stove, along with a gas cylinder, and corn in bulk. Her goals are to grow her business and increase her profits, to invest in her child's education.

Yojana is grateful for the partnership of Friendship Bridge and Kiva that supports her dreams of eliminating poverty and providing a brighter future for her family.
Thank you!
