Estrellas De Paquixiq Group's story
Juana only has two years of formal education but, along with the other 11 Maya K‘iche ladies in the group, benefits greatly from her monthly educational trainings, part of the “Microcredit Plus” program (loans, education, health care) of Friendship Bridge. The information on budgeting, investing and savings helps the women manage their traditional clothing, tortilla, peanut and tailoring businesses. They also learn about an aspect of three other topics: health, family, women. Juana mentions that she especially appreciates learning how to invest effectively and grow her funds. (Some of the Trust Bank members have brought their children who appear in the photograph to the meeting!)
These women are tremendously appreciative to participate in the program. They send their “thank yous” to Kiva investors from all corners of the world!
