Mujeres Luchadoras De Cocales Group's story
Mirna works at her home taking care of the household until 3 p.m. At that time, she opens her business selling women’s shoes that she brings to her home in the department/state of Suchitepequez. Mira works with her son in this business. Her goals are to expand the business and improve customer service. Mirna is requesting her first Kiva loan to buy a large quantity of women’s sandals to resell.
There are 7 ladies in the Trust Bank who have tortilla shops, sell chicken meat, shoes, kitchenware and personal care products. They look forward to their monthly meetings when they offer each other support, make loan payments and participate in educational training. The women acquire basic business tools, learn to care for their families effectively (nutrition, hygiene, health) and themselves (self-esteem, empowerment, women’s rights/roles). Every other month, they have access to basic health care services. Friendship Bridge calls the combination of loans, education and health care “Microcredit Plus”.
Mirna and her friends send their gratitude to Kiva lenders from all parts of the world. Thank you for learning about them and funding their much needed loans!
