La Estrella Flat Group's story

This group is called “La Estrella Flat” because the members believe if people achieve what they set out to do, then they will shine like the brightest star. The seven members of this group and their business activities are listed below:

• Maricela T. sells soft drinks and chicken.
• Juana C. sells tamales.
• Maria de los Angeles sells soft drinks and a few groceries.
• Margarita N. plans to sell beer.
• Adriana Betzabel sells bedspreads.
• Maria C. sells costume jewelry.
• Jeny L. sells clothing.

Sra. Maria de los Angeles is married and has three children. She wants to expand her business and open a small store that is away from her house. Since there are no other stores in the area, she wants to keep her business well-stocked so that she can generate the most income. With this loan, she will buy soft drinks, soap, eggs, sugar, and other items. Her goals for the future are to provide a better life for her children and support them so that they can become professionals.

So far, Maria is happy to be with a group that knows how to respond to any situation that presents itself. As a unit, the members are supportive of one another. She thanks Kiva and Fundación Realidad for trusting them again by providing a new loan. They say they will not disappoint anyone.
