Flor Kantuta Group's story

The Flor Kantuta Community Association will start its first loan cycle with Kiva partner Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Panamericana. It is comprised of eight members and is run by a board of directors headed up by Lucha. The businesses that the members of the community association run are varied. Among them we have: crocheting blankets, selling fish, dairy production, making cardigans, a general store, arts and crafts, food sales, and upholstery.

Lucha states that this is her first time working with Pro Mujer and that she started by invitation from a promoter. She has a business of making cardigans. She has been in this business for three years, which she started on her own.

The loan she will take is to purchase fabric. She will purchase this material from Ceja wholesale after it is made. This work allows her to generate revenue to support her family. She is married and has six children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the training, health, and savings.
