Mujeres El Esfuerzo Group's story
There are seven Maya Mam ladies in the Trust Bank who live in the department/state of Quetzaltenango. They have convenience stores, as well as businesses selling fresh corn tortillas and “refacciones”. The women learn to manage their businesses effectively at their monthly educational trainings. They learn about planning, budgeting, investing and savings. Yeimi points out that she found the topic of the dangers of over-indebtedness especially important. The ladies also learn about health, hygiene, nutrition, and self esteem. Every other month, they have access to basic health care services. Friendship Bridge calls this effective combination of loans, education and health care “Microcredit Plus”.
Kiva investors, partnering with Friendship Bridge, are very important in the lives of Yeimi and her friends. Thank you to each of you for generously funding their loans!
