Violetas De San Francisco Group's story

The pandemic has affected marketplace availability and hours throughout Guatemala resulting in the increased popularity of neighborhood convenience stores. Norma, a 31 year old married mother of 4 children between the ages of 5-14, has a store. She needs to restock the shelves and is requesting a Kiva loan to buy canned goods, cereal, coffee, dairy products, pasta, sugar and drinks. Norma shares, “I am really proud because thanks to my business, I can help cover the costs of my children’s education. My biggest wish is that they finish high school.”

Kiva investors play an important role in the lives of Norma and her friends. Thank you!
