A loan helped to buy threads for weaving.

Dúo San Andrés Group's story

Dúo San Andrés is represented by Hermelinda. She has been weaving traditional güipiles (tunics or blouses) for many years. Thanks to the help that Kiva has offered to her, with her income she has been able to contribute to the fees for her children's studies.

She now needs a new loan to be able to continue weaving since she has orders for the end of the year and she needs to fulfill them as soon as possible. She promises to remain responsible with her payments, as she already thanks Kiva for their support.
