San Juan De Comumpiari Group's story

The San Juan de Comumpiari communal bank is a responsible and cheerful group made up of 8 members. They are in their 11th cycle. It is led by Hermelinda, the president, together with the treasurer and the secretary. Due to pandemic reasons, the three of them are in the photograph.

Hermelinda, aged 29, is an enterprising, responsible, and very hardworking woman. She has three young children who are her inspiration to keep going forward. Her children are 10, 6 and the youngest is 1 year old.

For ten years, Hermelinda has worked in agriculture, growing cacao and mullein, as well as coffee and other fruit trees, according to the season. At this time, she is asking Kiva for a loan to invest in doing maintenance on her cropland so that she can keep harvesting good products and keep her customers satisfied.

She also works as a laborer on other cropland during her free time. With this, she generates better income and improves her quality of life. At the same time, Hermelinda continues to save in her group so that she can buy some land and keep investing in agriculture. Her partner is also a farmer and both of them are getting ahead for he good of their children.
