A loan helped a member to buy chicks, pigs and feed for them with her first loan from Kiva.


Union Tzujilense Group's story

Reyna, a 31 year old married woman and mother of 3 children over the age of 9, is determined that her children have a successful life. For this reason she strives to provide primary education for all of her children. She understands the tremendous value of a good education, as she was only able to attend school for 1 year.

Reyna does not have a job, however, to generate income, for three years she has been dedicated to raising and selling poultry in one of the markets in the area. Her business is quite popular and growing. As she has more and more clients, Reyna needs to buy more chickens and turkeys to fatten up and sell. She has applied for her first loan from Kiva to buy chicks, pigs and feed for them.

Reyna is the secretary of the Puente de Amistad Community Bank “Union Tzujilense”, along with 7 other women who are part of the group. They look forward to monthly meetings where they support each other, make loan payments and participate in educational trainings, part of the “Microcredit Plus” loan, education and health services program. Topics are drawn from 4 areas: health, family, women, business. A relevant theme remains about the importance of wearing masks, maintaining social distance, and washing hands. Every 2 months, the women have access to basic health services.

Thank you, Kiva lenders, for helping Reyna and her companions. They are highly appreciative!
