Las Nubes Group's story

This group is called “Las Nubes” (The Clouds) because they want to reach great heights in their lives. The eight group members are: Olga Lidia G., Angélica V., Rosa T., Yareli Rodríguez, Guillermina F., Jaime Yépez, Justina Barragán and Luz Elena G.; they all live in the state of Veracruz. Olga sells catalogue items; Rosa and Yareli sell clothing, Guillermina, Jaime, Justina and Luz Elena raise cattle.

Olga Lidia is the group representative. She’s married and has three children: Lidia Guadalupe, 18, Samuel, 14 and Abigail, 9.

Olga Lidia has a small shop in her home where she stocks clothing, stationery supplies and gift items. She assures us that this business generates good profits because there aren’t too many other similar businesses in her community.

She will use these funds to buy stock items for her shop in order to have more varied items available for sale.

Olga Lidia says that she is very happy in her “Las Nubes” group because she knows she can trust them. She feels very fortunate that Kiva lenders are willing to help her business succeed.

In this group: Luz Elena, Angelica, Rosa, Olga Lidia, Yarelin, Guillermina, Justina, Jaime
