A loan of $2,900 helped a member to buy chairs and tables.


Tlayecac Group's story

This group is called Tlayecac, as this is the name of the community where it is located. All the members are merchants. Yolanda and Sebastiana sell candy. Maleny, Luisa, and Alicia sell food. Yadira has a small beauty shop. Marcela sells cloth napkins. Dominga sells fruits and vegetables, Ambrosia has a general store, and Beda raises livestock. Alicia, a member of the group, is married and has a young daughter in primary school. She sells prepared food from her house. With this loan, she would like to buy tables and chairs, as well as a little candy, to sell in her locale so she can increase her profits. She tells us that she feels very comfortable as a part of this group; she had worked in others, but did not enjoy it because there were too many problems. Here, however, it is the opposite, and she hopes to be able to continue counting on the support from the Foundation Realidad and KIVA to continue helping her family get ahead.

In this group: Dominga, Beda, Ambrosia, Yolanda, Alicia*, Yadira, Maria Luisa, Sebastiana, Maleny, Marcela
