Yumbatos Progresando Group's story

Blanca is 19 years old and lives with her husband and her 2-year-old son. Despite her young age, Blanca continues to work hard to support her family.

Currently she is the president of the "Yumbatos Progresando" group, made up of 13 members. A year ago, she started selling food and juices, started selling together with her mother and now works independently from home.

"My partner works in motocars, we want to get ahead", Blanca said. She applies for her loan through kiva to improve her food stall, buying tables, chairs, and eventually she wants to set up a restaurant in her own place, so that she can have more income and a better quality of life.

She considers herself an enterprising woman, a fighter and eager to get ahead and fight for her goals, so that her son has a better future.
