Dúo Calle Simon Group's story

“Duo Calle Simon” was formed by Mercy, who is from the city of Tecpan, in Guatemala. She is 23 years old, and she has her three year old son under her care. She is engaged in making typical fabric by hand, and she also has a corn mill.

Mercy, a hardworking, enterprising person, started her own business three years ago,the time that she’s been married. At that time, she saw that the place where she lived needed a corn mill, so she did everything possible to set up her own business, and she is also engaged in making typical fabrics by hand.

Her husband works as a day laborer, and thanks to his support, she continues moving forward with her business. The income she receives is a great blessing for her family.

Mercy will invest the loan in the purchase of thread to make her fabrics, since she is unable to work at times due to lack of funds. She is very grateful to Kiva for their support.
