Socavon Group's story

The "Socavón" ("Tunnel") group is represented by Casilda, who together with her 12 members are on their third loan cycle with Kiva's partner and have demonstrated honor and responsibility. In this group the majority of the members make a living selling baked good such as homemade bread, tortas, empanadas and pastries in general. Others make a living selling candy, candles, food or work in public transportation. In their commercial arena there is a lot of competition in pricing, and it's for this reason they are requesting the loan so they can diversify their products and can purchase ingredients and materials to help minimize their costs and produce larger quantities of their goods. This will improve their income and help them provide a better quality of life for their families.

In this group: Cacilda, Jhilver Roberto, Rita Reyna, Blanca Lidia, Nestor Limber*, Guadalupe, Clemencia Etelvina, Bernardina, Lesly Roxana, Dora, Cristhian Marcelo, Carla Ximena
