A loan helped to buy more personal care products and disinfectants that are the most in demand by her customers.


Adonai Group's story

The colorful native dress of the 10 ladies in the Friendship Bridge Trust Bank “Adonai” is designed, woven, embroidered and time consuming (1-3 months) to make. Some of the women in the group fabricate it to sell while others sell sausages, chicken by the pound, catalog products and ice cream. The women live in the department/state of Quiche and are requesting their 4th Kivaloan.

These ladies and nearly 28,000 others learn to manage their loans through the “Microcredit Plus” program of loans, education and healthcare services. At their monthly meetings, after making loan payments, they eagerly participate in educational training that give them effective business tools like planning, budgeting, investing and savings. They also learn about other relevant topics like health, nutrition, hygiene, the use of medicinal plants and how to prioritize expenses. They empower themselves and raise their self esteem in the process.

The Treasurer of the group is Catarina, who is 55 years old, and for over a decade has sold personal care products and home goods by catalog sales. With her income, she has funded the education of her 2 children, who are now 30 and 32. She shares, “My children have grown up with better living conditions and are now successful. I am so proud to have used my income to make this happen.” She is now requesting a Kiva loan to buy more personal care products and disinfectants that are the most in demand by her customers.

Thank you, Kiva investors!.
