A loan helped to buy ingredients for her bread business and more traditional clothing to resell.
Pacoxom Nahuala Group's story
Right now, Maria is requesting her first Kiva loan to buy eggs, flour, and sugar for her bread business, as well as more traditional clothing. She wants to add women’s sandals to sell to her customers.
There are eight Maya K’iche ladies in the Trust Bank who are proud of their cultural heritage and wear their beautiful traditional clothing. They have planned carefully and want to invest the Kiva funds into their furniture, shoes, clothing, bakery, and animal husbandry businesses. They have learned to plan, budget, and invest in their monthly meetings since business is one of the topics covered in their educational training. Other topics include health, women’s issues, and family matters. Friendship Bridge calls the combination of loans, education, and health care services “Microcredit Plus.”
Maria and her friends in the group would be unable to access credit in a bank. They are very appreciative to Kiva lenders who supply the funds for their much needed loans. Thank you to each of you!
