Amistad Group's story

The Friendship Communal Bank is receiving its second Kiva loan and has demonstrated responsibilty and excellent monetary stewardship. The group is represented by Graciela and is comprised of 14 members, the majority of whom operate businesses selling products such as food, groceries, and clothes, as well as offering services such as public transportation and tailoring.

The members accept that there is great competition in the market with supply and demand, but thanks to their experience, they know how to rise above this.
