La Sangre De Cristo Mancotal Group's story

Saida is a 31-year-old trader. She is married and has two children.

Saida makes a living selling used clothing in her community. Saida started doing this work eight years ago in order to support her husband with household and school expenses. Saida has had various businesses, from making and selling enchiladas to raising pigs. Saida also earns an income as a teacher in the local community, giving classes at a primary school from Monday to Friday.

Saida used her last Kiva loan to increase stock at her business and earned good profits on sales. Saida is again applying for a Fundenuse loan funded by Kiva to buy packs of clothing. Saida plans to increase sales in the up-coming local coffee-cutting season as there is more movement of people and sales increase.

Saida's plans for the future are to be able to establish her business on fixed premises and to build a concrete house as the place where she currently lives is made with wood.

Saida is a member of the “La Sangre de Cristo Mancotal" loan group with fellow borrowers Deyling, who makes a living selling clothing, and Jamileth, who sells clothing and vegetables.
