A loan of $3,950 helped a member to buy ingredients for preparing foods.


Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

This communal bank is in its eighth loan cycle. They are a very responsible group whose members work every day to get themselves ahead.

Ms. Ramona wants this loan to further build her food preparation business. She produce a variety of empanadas, as well as sandwiches, milanesas [breaded cutlet sandwiches], french fries, etc. She hopes to increase her income, which will help her to continue lending a hand in maintaining her home. Above all, she wants to ensure that her children do not lack anything.

All of the women in this group trust that Kiva lenders will help them to progress by providing the requested loans, because life is very difficult for them and they would like to overcome the poverty in which they find themselves.
