Dúo Valles De Bendición Group's story

Telma Florinda and Delmi Noemi form this duo. Telma Florinda has woven traditional fabrics for several years. With her business, she is propelling her two sons forward since they are young and since she is a single mother. She learned this trade from her mother, and it has provided her with a way to sustain her household.

She weaves her fabrics in her home, which allows her to watch her children, take care of household duties, and also focus on her business. Her customers custom order the fabrics since they are made by hand and it takes a long time to make them.

Telma Florinda is grateful to the Kiva and FAPE lenders for blessing her in her work. She also hopes that they all prosper and are blessed.

With her previous loan, she had several days of delay because the COVID-19 pandemic impacted her business, but thank God she resolved it. Now, she is requesting a loan to purchase thread and cloth in order to continue weaving her traditional fabrics.
