Brisas Del Mar Group's story

The Treasurer of the Friendship Bridge Trust Bank, Brisas del Mar, is 27-year-old Sara, who is a married mother of two children (3,7). She has a third grade education, which is average for a Friendship Bridge client.

Her monthly educational training is part of the Microcredit Plus program of loans, education, and healthcare services. Sara and her six friends in the Trust Bank have the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge that they would not receive anywhere else and apply them in their businesses, families, and community in the department/state of Suchitepequez. Topics range from business management, health, and family issues to nutrition and hygiene. Other relevant subjects are covered as well.

Sara has two businesses: animal husbandry (chickens, turkeys, cattle) and selling personal care products. She is requesting a Kiva loan to to expand both businesses, and plans to buy more personal care products as well as corn for her animals. She is known to be quite motivated, with the goal of raising the standard of living for her family.

Thank you, Kiva lenders, for investing in women like Sara who is opening doors to a brighter future benefiting herself, her family, and community in Suchitepequez, Guatemala.
