Las Margaritas Del Rejon Group's story

Women living in rural areas of Guatemala play an important role in generating income through vegetable crops. This is the case for María, 25, who, along with her husband, has made it through the agriculture business. She is the mother of 4 children aged between 2 to 8 years. Thanks to the income from the business, children attend kindergarten and second grade of elementary school. Every fifteen days she delivers wholesale peas to her clients. Since Maria has several requests, she needs to prepare the ground for planting. She is requesting her 1st KIVA loan, which she will invest in the purchase of seed and wholesale organic fertilizer.

The seven Mayan Kaqchikel women from the Communal Bank of Puente de Amistad “Las Margaritas del Rejon” plan to invest capital in small agricultural farms. They are very happy because their product is sold with great success. These women also benefit from educational training on topics such as health care, hygiene measures and the use of technology. María and the rest of her companions are empowering themselves thanks to Puente de Amistad's “Microcredit Plus” program that includes small loans, non-formal education and basic health services.

KIVA lenders, without their financing these women's businesses would not be successful. Thank you for being part of our achievements!
