Las Divninas De Chalco Group's story

Paulina Angelica lives in the semiurban municipality of Valle de Chalco Solidaridad, located in Mexico State, Mexico. She is 24, married, and expecting her first baby. Her pregnancy causes her some anxiety due to her preoccupation with the expenses she has and is not able to cover. She has worked as a seamstress and would like to buy a sewing machine to make clothing items to sell. This would allow her to generate income to help her to cover basic necessities for her baby without neglecting her baby and husband. For this reason she is seeking a loan through Kiva field partner Fundacion Realidad ("Reality Foundation") in conjunction with various neighbors from her community who together form the group Las Divinas de Chalco. Doramaria: Purchase of pots and pans, dishes, and a blender. Paulina Angelica: Purchase of a sewing machine (the second person in the photo, left to right). Miriam: Purchase of cosmetics and fragrances. Luz Gabriela: Funds for running a taco stand. Maria: Purchase of sweets. Veronica Natalia: Purchase of lingerie. Maria Esther: Purchase of cosmetics, fragrances and aromatherapy treatments. Teresa: Purchase of cosmetics, lotions and catalog clothing. Martha Guadalupe: Purchase of a sewing machine. Ceferino Javier: Purchase of construction materials. Angelina: Purchase of a sewing machine.
