Las Luchadoras Group's story

This group consists of 11 friends and neighbors in the city of Santaní. Their goal is to work together and by means of that work get ahead and help their families and children, giving them a dignified and proper lifestyle.

Maria works raising and selling animals, a job that helps support her family. She says that she has a lot of animals which she raises and then sells. She says that she has good customers and that, thanks to this, she has good earnings. That’s why she would like to be able to continue with this microenterprise.

She views herself as a hardworking, fighting, and enterprising woman since there is nothing easy about her job. She is applying for help from the foundation and Kiva in order to purchase animals to raise and later sell. She is thankful to the foundation for the opportunity that this gives her since the loan will be a big help.

In this group: Maria Florencia, Paola, Feliciana, Juana, Claudia, Joanna, Fermina, Marciana, Catalina, Mercedes*, Felicia*
