A loan of $2,550 helped a member purchase of chickens.

Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

This group, called Mujeres Emprendedoras [Enterprising Women], decided to call themselves that because for them, getting a loan was embarking on something new. The seven members of the group are: Guadalupe, who sells chicken; Cecilia, who owns a grocery store; Alfonso, who is a blacksmith; Araceli, who owns a beverage warehouse; Angel Manuel, who grows corn, Lorenza, who owns a sewing and notions shop, and Mayra, who grows corn. All of the group members live in the Axochiapan Morelos neighborhood.

Guadalupe is the group representative. She married Jerónimo Cardoso, and had four children: Ana Cecilia Cardoso G. who is 32, Abiel Cardoso G. who is 29, Rosalba Jazmín Cardoso G. who is 25, and the youngest, Dulce Montserrat Cardoso G. who is 17. She works selling chickens, both whole and in pieces. She sells from her home, because there were no vendors in her neighborhood, and her neighbors had to go buy chicken in the center of town, which was out of the way.

With this loan, Guadalupe will buy more merchandise to have a well stocked shop, which will help her make more money in order to have a better quality of life and not suffer shortages.

Guadalupe is very happy to belong to the group of enterprising women, and is very grateful to the lenders of Kiva and Fundación Realidad for supporting them with the loan.
