Mujeres Agradecidas Group's story
Amalia weaves throughout the year, and during the wintertime she grows peas, beans, and tomatoes. Her income helps out with the household expenses. She is proud that two of her children go to school. Amalia would like to invest in both businesses and is requesting her 2nd Kiva loan to buy seeds and fertilizer for the farm, and thread for her pretty “cortes.”
There are eight Maya K’iche ladies who appreciate their monthly Trust Bank meetings when they make payments on their loans and participate in educational trainings. Because they have little or no formal education, these sessions are vital to their growth and success. The women learn about an aspect of four subjects: business, health, family, and women.
Nearly 75% of the population in the department state of Totonicapan lives near or below the poverty line. With help from Kiva investors, partnering with Friendship Bridge, Amalia and her friends can open doors to brighter futures. Amalia adds, “A Kiva loan will really give a boost to our businesses.” Thank you!
