San Miguel Group's story

The group named San Miguel started out when one of the members wanted to form a group of responsible women. She invited her most trusted neighbors and friends to form the group. The group is now on their third loan cycle and there are 24 members.

The members define themselves as accomplished women who are hardworking and very responsilbe. They have one objective in common and that is to earn a greater income to cover their expenses.

Juana has a grocery store, one she has managed for some time now, and it is why she already has a well-defined clientele. She works hard day after day to generate a bit more income. She is the only on ewho is responsible for household expenses because a short time ago she became a widow. She lives with 5 of her children and with 3 grandchildren.

She requests a loan to purchase drinks, food products, milk products and other merchandise to supply her store. She is thankful to Fundacion (Kiva Field Partner) for the opportunity given to her. Obtaining a loan will be of great assistance.
