Mujeres Laboriosas Group's story

The group named "Hardworking Women" was made up by a group of neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso.

Lilian C. is one of the members of the group and she sells charcoal most of the time, and she sells ice-cream on her spare time.

She doesn't have any children and her husband is a baker.

She would like to have a loan to purchase charcoal in wholesale quantities in order to improve her profits when the income is calculated after resale.

The group is very thankful because if it weren't for Kiva's financial support they would not be able to achieve their goals.

In this group: Vilma, Fermina, Lorena, Vilma Lorena, Desy, Hipolita, Francisca, Emerenciana, Maria, Diosmede, Lilian*, Silvia*
