A loan helped a member to buy corn and gas for her tortilla store, and threads to continue with her embroidery business.


Triunfadoras Group's story

Clara, a generous 20 year old hardworking woman, lives with her parents and 6 siblings in a rural area of the state of Sololá. She says that she is committed to helping support her family, specially during this time of the Coronavirus when her parents need it even more.
Clara has a tortilla business which she manages with great pride. She uses part of her income to help her siblings to continue with their education. Clara graduated with a degree in accounting, but she has not been able to get a job.
Besides the tortilla store, she decided to open another small business of traditional textiles embroidery.
She is requesting her first Kiva loan to buy corn and gas for her tortilla store, and threads to continue with her embroidery business.
Clara is a member of the Communal Bank Puente de Amistad “Triunfadoras” which generally meets once a month. However, due to the restrictions of the Coronavirus, its facilitator sometimes comes to the community and other times communicates with them via cell phone or WhatsApp. The facilitator puts emphasis on the importance of hygiene, use of masks and social distancing. In the meetings in person, they discuss 4 subjects: health, family, woman and business. This important combination of loans, education and medical care is called “Microcrédito Plus”.
¡Thanks, Kiva lenders for these such necessary loans!
