Xopanapa Group's story

Sra. Mariana is a member of Grupo Xopanapa (a Náhuatl word meaning water from a rainshower). She takes care of the home and looks after her children and husband. She attends school meetings. She speaks Náhuatl.

Mariana has just started a business selling toys and craft supplies in the local town so that she can help her husband pay for household expenses and school supplies for their children.

She is the leader of Grupo Xopanapa; the other members are Rufina who runs a bakery and Julia who sells clothing. The women are very grateful to Kiva and FRAC for the loan. They are sure that their businesses will do well so they can repay the money and not fall behind.

In this group: Mariana , Rufina, Julia
