Mujeres Independientes Group's story
The Secretary of the Trust Bank is 25-year-old Berta. She is a single mother who studied for two years to be a teacher. Berta has a five-year-old son who is in kindergarten.
She has a traditional textile business and weaves/sells blouses or “huipiles”, skirts or “cortes” and belts or “fajas”. Berta can sell eight complete outfits monthly. She is requesting her first Kiva loan to buy a large quantity of thread and the latest designs of clothing.
Berta wants Kiva lenders to know how much she benefits from the program. She shares, “We are greatly empowered learning how to manage our businesses, the dangers of over-indebtedness and how to take care of ourselves and our families.” Thank you, Kiva lenders, for the important role you play in the lives of these ladies!
