Triunfadoras Leales De Motupe Group's story

Communal bank "The Loyal and Triumphant Women of Motupe"

This group has been working with Edaprospo-Prosperidad (Kiva Field Partner) since 2010 and it is maD. up of several unified neighbors who are very eager to succeed in their lives. They are very committed to their businesses and to their families. Each one has their own unique style but when it comes to their work they all work with the same level of effort and motivation to grow.

One of the members is Patricia. In the mornings she takes care of the house work and her children but in the afternoons she manages her bicycle rental business. She took advantage of the location of their house, which is located in front of a park. On a daily basis, kids, teenagers, and sometimes even adults rent bicycles by the hour to get some exercise or to simply to enjoy an afternoon. Patricia's husband maintains the bicycles and he also repairs other mechanical or electric items.

Patricia is happy with her business and she even repairs bicycles sometimes, depending on the problem.

She dreams of having her own car to be able to rent it out and to have another source of income for her house.

In this group: Rosa, Delicia, Cristina, Vilma Mercedes, Dilver Antony, Victoria, Patricia
