Tres Caminos Group's story

Women in the rural area of ​​the Quiché State / Department have found an opportunity to generate income, without having to neglect their homes, in agricultural and textile businesses.

For María, a 37-year-old married woman, these businesses have been functional. She has found her integral development, generates income and brings development to her family. María started 6 years ago with the business of raising animals (chickens, pigs, cows, turkeys, ducks). She also sells cow's milk and its derivatives (cheese, cream) for other income.

Thanks to the income, Maria can support her husband with the educational expenses of her 4 children, who are aged from 5 to 17 years old. Right now she needs to increase the number of animals in her pens. With Kiva's 1st loan, she will buy a cow.

Seven Mayan K’iche women are part of the Puente de Amistad “Tres Caminos” Community Bank. They live in the rural area of ​​the Department (state) of Quiché and have small businesses such as raising animals, selling vegetables and preparing dairy products. Since Maria and the other women have little education, the monthly trainings are very important to them. Through this knowledge, they learn to effectively manage their businesses, take care of themselves and their families. Every 2 months, women have access to basic health services. Puente de Amistad calls the combination of loans, educational training and health "Microcredit Plus."
