El Buen Camino Group's story

Maura is 37 years old. She is married and is the mother of five children, of whom two still depend on her.

She is a farmer and has been dedicated for 16 years to the production of basic grains and to making and selling nacatamales [corncakes filled with meat and vegetables steamed in banana leaves], caramels, bread, and ice cream. She belongs to the communal bank called El Buen Camino along with Ruth and Zayda.

She had profits from growing corn and beans from her previous Kiva loan and was able to buy some furniture for her home. She also managed to store some of the harvest and could buy school supplies for her two children who still go to school.

She is requesting another loan through Fundenuse for her second Kiva loan to pay for the rental of land for growing beans and also to buy pigs to raise.

Her next goal is to be able to stop renting and have her own plot of land for planting and in the future improve her home in order to improve her quality of life and that of her family.
