Buenas Mujeres De Jucha Group's story

The Trust Bank, “Las Buenas Mujeres de Jucha” (The Good Women of Jucha) is composed of nine responsible and enthusiastic women whose average age is 36 years. As they want to increase their businesses, they have requested an additional loan from Friendship Bridge. Their goal is to provide a better future for their families and their community. Carmen is the 50 year-old Treasurer of the Trust Bank and has a large family of six children. She feels quite proud to be a member of the group. Carmen mentions that she especially likes being on the Board of Directors as she is able to develop her leadership skills. Three years ago, Carmen began to work in the tailoring and garment industry. She learned a lot about the business from her son and daughter-in-law and began to make tee shirts, shirts and pants. Carmen is excelling in her business and will use her new Friendship Bridge loan to meet the requests of future clients. She will purchase an additional sewing machine. Two additional people have been hired! Carmen tells us that she anticipates a lot of work in the next few months and so the loan will come at a good time! Carmen, along with her fellow Trust Bank members, appreciates the confidence that Kiva investors have placed in their ability to progress forward in their lives with loans and education. The women are grateful and amazed that people around the world hear of their need and share monetary support
