Las Manuelas De Xepol Group's story

Delia, is a 26 year old woman, an empowered woman who is getting ahead. She shares: “I am a married woman. I take care of my home and, at the same time, I have the opportunity to manage 3 businesses: the sale of accessories for cell phones, I am a seamstress and I also knit beautiful blouses. Part of my income is used to provide for the basic needs of my children over 4 years old ”. In the short term she wants to supply the cell phone accessories business. With the 1st loan from KIVA, Delia will be able to achieve her goal by purchasing cases, protectors and chargers.

There are 7 women in the Puente de Amistad Community Bank "Las Manuelas de Xepol". They live in the department/state of Quiché and speak their mother tongue K'iche '. They value business training because it helps them better manage traditional textile businesses (belts, skirts, blouses), cell phone accessories, and fruit farming (apples, peaches, plums). Other women are seamstresses. Every 2 months, women have access to basic health care exams and family planning. Puente de Amistad's "Microcredit Plus" loan, educational training and healthcare program offers programs and services that create opportunities for families to build sustainable futures in Guatemala. The 32,000 women who participate in the program are proud of the success they are achieving.
