San Jose Obrero Group's story

The group San Jose Obrero is in its 6th cycle with its 27 members, all of whom have an enterprising spirit and dreams of improving their lives. They are women from the village who work in farming and animal husbandry, and through their independence and strength they have been able to move forward together with their families.

One of the members is Jovina, an entrepreneurial woman who works selling products from her fields and animals. During the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, her sales diminished significantly since she was not able to work normally, and she is very grateful for the opportunity she has received through Kiva. She is requesting a loan to refinance her debt and buy agricultural materials for her fields so that she can invest in her business.
