La Hermita Group's story

The solidarity group "La hermita" is a hardworking group that has learned to take advantage of the opportunity given by Kiva lenders, since it is for the eighth time they are requesting a loan to continue working and expanding their businesses. Mayra, the group's coordinator, is 28 years, married and with two children who are 11 and 2 years old. She has worked as a cobbler for 9 years. Her husband is the one who makes the product, and is requesting a loan to buy soles, white and blue glue, leather, fiber, royal and nails.
Her goal is to keep on working so that her business can grow, and to offer her customers a variety of products.
With the earnings she obtained with the previous loan, she was able to repair the roof of her house, and to expand a little her place of business.
The members Maria, 45 years old, works buying and selling harvests. Nelson, 28 years old, works selling spices.

In this group: Mayra Del Socorro, Maria, Nelson Enrique
