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

A loan helped to buy fruits such as bananas, apples, and other produce.

Santa Rosita Group's story

The Communal Bank “Santa Rosita” consists of eight enterprising women who have demonstrated great creativity with their businesses. One of them is Sra. Leonora. She is 61 years old, married, and has two grown children.

Sra. Leonora is hardworking and determined. As a result of her efforts, she has found a way to succeed and help her family move forward. For the past 14 years, Sra. Leonora has been selling fruits at a stand located in front of a market. She works every day and this business is the only source of income for herself and her family. The loan she is receiving will be used to buy more fruits such as bananas, apples, and other produce that she can eventually sell. She will be able to continue satisfying her customers and generate more income.

In the photo, Sra. Leonora is the third person from the right who is wearing a brown jacket. She and the other group members are grateful to Kiva for the loan that has been issued and for the trust that has been shown to them. They promise to accomplish all of the goals they have set for themselves.
