Azucareras Group's story
Berta is one of the eight women who make up the Community Bank named “Azucareras” with Friendship Bridge. The live in the coastal area of the State of Suchitepéquez. These women have small restaurants, sell fish, raise pigs, sell fruit, and sell corn tortillas and firewood. In addition to having access to loans, these women participate in monthly educational seminars that cover four topics: business, preventative health, family, and women’s issues. Berta appreciates learning about these topics, especially the dangers of over-indebtedness and making good investments. Every two months, the women have access to basic health services. This combination of loans, education, and health care services is called “Microcredit Plus”.
Berta and her companions are grateful to participate in this program. They express their thanks to the Kiva lenders for impacting their lives!
