Santa Teresita 2 Group's story

Entrepreneurial women are intelligent and seek strategies to have a business that allows them to generate income and provide better living conditions for their families. Beidy is one of these women. She is 30 years old, lives with her husband and is the mother of a 6-year-old girl. Beidy works hard to help her husband meet her daughter's basic needs, including her education. With a secretarial diploma, she can efficiently run the chicken and pork business. Additional Beidy also invests in the family business of a metal structure workshop. To increase the inventory of the businesses, Beidy applies to Kiva lenders for the 4th loan. She wants to invest 75% in the purchase of iron in different sizes for the workshop and buy 1 pig to continue selling meat. Beidy, along with 7 other women make up the Puente de Amistad "Santa Teresita 2" Community Bank in the Department / State of Suchitepéquez. They get ahead thanks to small businesses selling food, clothing stores, daily consumption stores and selling meat. In Beidy's words: "By having access to the loan, I also learn about strategies to generate new business and have access to free health services." These are the benefits of Puente de Amistad's “Microcredit Plus” program. With the support of Kiva's moneylenders, the women move forward in their businesses, hoping for a prosperous future. Thanks!
