Mujeres Vencedoras Group's story
She is 41 years old, married and the mother of three children who range in age from 13 to 22.
Olga had three years of formal education. Her husband is a driver of a bus or “camioneta” and doesn’t earn enough to support the family. Olga has a food cart in a local school where she sells regional snack foods and also offers lunch service out of her home. She employs three young women to help her.
Olga is requesting a Kiva loan to buy spices, food items and drinks. Some of her income will be earmarked for the continuing education of her children.
At the monthly meetings, the ladies look forward to educational trainings, part of the “Microcredit Plus” program of loans, education and health care services. Topics are chosen from four areas: business, health, family, women. “The topics about how to avoid over-indebtedness, solidarity and responsibility are now a part of my life," Olga says.
Kiva investors partnering with Friendship Bridge are highly valued by Olga and her friends. Thank you to each of you!
