Los Residentes De Huaccana Group's story

The communal bank "Los Residentes de Huaccana" is made up of 12 members. They are going through their second loan cycle and are happy to keep moving forward. The group has a board of directors that represents them in the ACPD. In the photo is the president, treasurer and secretary.

Ruth, 26, is the treasurer. She is very happy to support the group and is a young mother. She has a six-year-old son and with the support of her partner they are getting ahead.

Some time ago, she started activities in the cocoa and banana harvest. In her spare time she also works as a kitchen assistant and in the fields as a day labourer.

In this occasion, she requests a loan through Kiva to clear and prune her cocoa plot, in order to have a better agricultural yield.

In addition, her partner works as a construction helper, thus supporting her partner a lot. Ruth considers herself a capable, honest and responsible person.
