Dúo Jerico Group's story

Jerico Duo

This duo is represented by María Olivia, who has sold tubes, newspapers, and traditional clothing for more than nine years. She also sells snacks on the weekend.

She's a very hardworking woman. Besides having a variety of activities, she finds a way to do needlework for the clothing she sells. She's well known by people in her area as a woman who works hard.

María Olivia is requesting this loan to be able to buy more newspapers because now she has workers in her home making the tubes and she has to get newspapers.

She goes out twice a week to town to shop. And the approaching season is when the newspapers are most in demand, so she's requesting this loan to make a wholesale purchase in the capital. She hopes Kiva can help her.

María Olivia's dream is to be able to buy a plot of land to leave to her children.
