Buena Esperanza Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy flour, shortening, firewood, etc. for her business making bread.

Buena Esperanza Group's story

Petrona is married and has three, grown children, none of whom is dependent on her. She is 60 years old and works making and selling bread. She attended school through middle school.

Petrona started her business when she was 35 year old, processing bushels of flour. She started it through her own effort. She started gaining customers in her town, and now her business is known in the community. She currently processes one to two bushels of flour a week. This has allowed her to have her own income and help with the household finances.

Petrona formed a group with three other people: María, Kevin and Adriana. It is called Buena Esperanza [Good Hope]. She seeks a loan through Fundenuse, with Kiva funds, to buy the raw ingredients to make her products. This will ensure that her sales in the month of August rise as the harvest comes in and there are more assets. Petrona's future plan is to improve the infrastructure of her business.
