Unidas En La Fe 2, 3 Group's story

Santa J. is a hardworking grandmother supporting her family selling various merchandise, such as clothing, perfume, deodorant, shampoo and kitchen goods. Selling these goods from her home and on the street, Santa is committed to getting products to her customers. She is so committed that she will wake up at 4 a.m. to take a four-hour bus to a large city to prepare her inventory.

Santa is the mother of 12 children, of which four live with her along with four grandchildren. She finds herself needing to use any profits to support the household with food and electricity. Her husband makes extra money creating and selling carbon for cooking.

Living with far too many people in too small of a house, Santa is hoping that with time, she will save enough money to improve her home. She describes the need to create more space for the 10 people living under her roof. She is thankful for the opportunity to take out her third loan with the hope of an improved business.

Thank you for this Kiva loan!
