Pasajoc Group's story
Dominga is a member of the Community Bank of Friendship Bridge "Pasajoc", along with 11 other Mayan women K'iche'. They live in houses built of adobe and reed roof, in the rural area of the Department (state) of Totonicapán. Dominga had the opportunity to attend school for 4 years. Most of the women in the group have little or no formal education. However, they are eager to learn and empower themselves. In the monthly meetings they participate in educational training (business, health, family, women.) Puente de Amistad calls this effective combination of loans, health care services and educational training "Microcredit Plus".
Women can empower themselves, boost their businesses, educate their children and alleviate poverty, thanks to the friendly hand between lenders from Kiva and Puente de Amistad.
