Flor Canelitas Group's story

The communal bank named "Flor Canelitas" will start their first loan cycle with Pro Mujer (Kiva Field Partner) as part of Centro Collpani. The group is made up of eight members and it is directed by a board of directors, lead by Martha. The businesses held by the members of the communal bank are varied, and among them we have: lettuce production, furniture sales, food production and sales, livestock farming, mechanic shop, and dairy production.

It is Martha's first time joining Pro Mujer and she joined following an invitation by a promoter. She currently has a food production and sales business. She has had her business for the past sixteen years. She learned the business from previous employment.

The loan that she will access will be used to increase her inventory (to purchase soft drinks) which she will acquire from the commercial district of the city. She will later resell them at a minibus stop. This type of business will help her generate an income to support her family in whatever possible. She is married and she has nine children.

When she was asked what she appreciates about Pro Mujer she said she enjoys the savings program.

In this group: Martha Adriana, Jhaneth Juana, Francisca, Batty Jhanet, Juana, Berlinda, Juana Agrepina, Marina
