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

A loan helped to purchase thread to make hand-woven items to sell.

Dúo Calle Nueva Group's story

The Calle Nueva duo is formed by María, from the municipality of Tecpán Guatemala. She is 58 years old, and in her care is her daughter who is a minor. She works joyfully making traditional woven items by hand.

María is a hard-working and enterprising person who, day by day, is struggling to get ahead. Previously she has had other Kiva loans and thanks to the punctuality of her payments, she has not fallen into arrears. Her business is going well although in the market there is a lot of competition. Thanks to God, she has been able to get ahead.

Now she asks for this new loan because she sees the need to invest a little more in raw material since from now to the new year she wants to make the most of the sale of traditional woven items.
