Generacion De Cambio Group's story
Ericka sews covers for kitchen appliances, and she is requesting her second Kiva loan to buy a sewing machine and fabric.
Ericka studied computer science for two years at the university level. She is exceptional, as the average client who participates in the “Microcredit Plus” program of loans, education and health care services of Friendship Bridge has little or no formal education.
There are six other ladies in the Trust Bank who have businesses selling clothing from the U.S., food carts, and small tortilla shops. They learn about effective business practices (planning, budgeting, investing, saving) at their monthly meetings and also about health, hygiene, nutrition and the use of medicinal plants. Ericka particularly liked the trainings about savings, prioritizing expenses and making informed decisions before an emergency arises.
Kiva lenders are highly valued by these women, who live far away in the department/state of Quetzaltenango. Thank you!
