La Familia Group's story

The Banco D. Emprendimiento La Familia (The Family Entrepreneurial Bank) is one of the oldest banks of our institution: they have been working with us for the past 3 years. The majority of its members works in the traD. industry.

Angelica is the President. A widow of many years, she is the head of her family, and she provides for her 2 daughters. She is the manager of a school and she also dedicates herself to the traD. industry, selling provisions in her area. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy products, as she receives many requests, in order to succeed in increasing her income. She is also planning on saving money for the education of her daughters.

Miguel is the secretary. He has a large family. He is a driver and has his own car: he will use the loan to maintain his car and to buy tyres to keep on working and thus covering the expenses for his children.

Mercedes is the treasurer of the bank. Her family is composed of 2 more members and she is a dressmaker. The loan she is requesting she will buy textiles of various quality and type in order to vary her models and her products. She is planning on buying a sewing machine with her savings.

All the members are responsible and hard-working people working for an improvement in their life conditions and in their families’ quality of life. They are very thankful to Emprender and Kiva for the faith shown in granting the loan.
