A loan of $2,800 helped a member working capital.

Las Lideres Group's story

The group “Las Lideres” is represented by Señora Piedades whose sister Señora Mirtha is also part of the group. Their income is totally independent of each other. The members of the group earn their living in different ways such as selling clothes, shoes, bread, glass, and cosmetics from a catalogue. Competition in the market place increases daily so the members have to improve their products and their sales. For this reason they require financial assistance in order to be able to buy merchandise, materials, and ingredients at low prices. Increased sales and income will allow them to improve the quality of life for themselves and their families. The members have experience with organisations similar to Kiva partner, Agrocapital, but this will be their first loan with our institution.

In this group: Piedades, Roger, Carmen Rosa, Juan De Dios Elia, Rosse Mary, Julia, Jose Luis, Banesa Durian, Lorena, Mercedes, Mirtha, Martha, Jertrudis, Celsa
