Mayita Group's story

The solidarity group Mayita is made up of four women entrepreneurs who want to get ahead in their businesses and offer their families a better financial life.

The coordinator is Hilaria who is 49 years old, married, with four children under her care who are 13, and 8 years old and twins who are 11 years old. She works selling fruits and vegetables and her husband is the one who helps her financially. She is requesting a Kiva loan to buy oranges, bananas, mangos, mamón [melicoccus bijugatus] jocote [spondias purpurea] and watermelons.

Her goal is to continue to enlarge her business. With the profits from the last loan she was able to buy two sets of plastic chairs and a load of stones.

Her partners are Ana, 25 years old who is dedicated to the sale of fruits, 53-year-old Aura who sells various products, and 38-year-old Petrona who sells spices.

In this group: Aura Del Socorro, Petrona, Hilaria Del Socorro, Ana Yanci
