Perlas Preciosas San Pedro Group's story

San Pedro La Laguna is a small town on the shores of the beautiful Lake Atitlan in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. The volcano San Pedro towers above the town. It is here that eight very enthusiastic women have come together to form The Friendship Bridge Trust Bank, Perlas Preciosas San Pedro (Precious Pearls of San Pedro). Their purpose is to support one another and improve their lives. The women have agreed they will use a Kiva loan very productively. Dolores is a member of the Trust Bank. She is 21 years old, married and has twin girls who bring her much joy, which motivates her work. Dolores makes regional blouses. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, and other accessories that make the production of her blouses possible. With the income that she generates from the sales of her blouses, she is able to fulfill her goal of a university education, as well as being able to feed her daughters. Right now, she is beginning to study social work. The other members of the group are also making good investment decisions with their micro credit loans. The loans are helping with their crafts. The members of Perlas Preciosas San Pedro are extremely grateful to the Kiva investors for believing in them and investing in the dreams of the Guatemalan women. Thank you!
