Mujeres Emprendedoras Yepocapa Group's story
The Secretary of the group is Estefany, a 32-year-old, married mother of 5 children (2-16). Because her parents were without funds, she has only a 2nd grade education. Since her husband doesn’t earn enough to support the large family, Estefany opened a business making/selling delicious icy as well as fruit treats.
She is requesting her 2nd Kiva loan to buy boxes of pineapple and watermelon. Part of her income will be earmarked for the continuing education of her school age children who are now in primary and secondary schools.
The “Microcredit Plus” program, that combines loan support, monthly educational trainings, and access to health care services, is vital to the success of these women. T opics are chosen from 4 areas: health, family, women, business.
Estefany shares, “The themes about gender equality and the prevention of family violence have impacted me a great deal. I have learned to value my rights as a woman.”
Thank you, Kiva investors, for the vital role you play in the lives of Estefany and her friends in the Trust Bank!
