A loan helped to buy a variety of seeds, fertilizers and insecticides for agriculture.

Flor Cauquense Group's story

Sandra, 28, is a woman who has great aspirations in life. She thinks that union is strength and, together with her husband, they provide better living conditions for her 4-year-old boy.

She and her husband are farmers of radishes, cauliflower, beets, lettuce, and carrots. Sandra sells her product at the wholesale level inside and outside of her community.

She is aware that the success she has obtained is thanks to her diligence, saving, and accessing a loan. Hoping to continue growing in her business, Sandra applies for a third Kiva loan. She will buy a variety of seeds, fertilizers and insecticides for agriculture.

The nine women from the Communal Bank of Friendship Bridge "Flor Cauquense" are from the Kaqchikel ethnic group and live in a rural area of ​​the Department of Sacatepéquez. In addition to access to the loan for agricultural businesses, they benefit from the training they receive monthly. Sandra shares: "An important theme in my life: customer service and the use of technology. Proper hand-washing and keeping my home disinfected help me protect and take care of my health and that of my family." This is thanks to the “Plus” program of Puente de Amistad (Friendship Bridge) that combines small loans, formal education and health.

Thank you!
