Salmo 53 Group's story
Ingrid is one of 7 Maya K’iche ladies in the Friendship Bridge Trust Bank Salmo 53 located in a rural area in the department/state of Totonicapan. The women make canvas pants, have fresh orange juice stands, shoe workshops and small restaurants. Each month, they participate in educational trainings that cover an aspect of 4 topics: business, health, family, women. Ingrid shares that she especially appreciated learning about the dangers of over-indebtedness and how to best use her loan. Every other month, the women have access to basic health care services. The combination of loans, education and health care services is called Microcredit Plus.
Ingrid and her friends are most appreciative to participate in this program. Thank you, Kiva investors!
