Loma Linda Group's story

This united group called Loma Linda is made up of Gregoria who will use her loan to buy sugar, milk, chiles, and dairy products and also there is Benigno who will buy seasonal catalogs and shoes to fill his orders. Then there is Adriana who will purchase calves to fatten up. Adriana is 28, married and she and her husband have a taco stand. They have two daughters in primary school. She has a fruit and vegetable sales business as well as selling meat, head, and tongue tacos. She is requesting a loan to buy marigolds, oranges, plantains and beans. She started the taco business 13 years ago in the town center in front of the church. Her husband taught her all about handling a taco business and it is very important to her since they depend on it for food and household expenses. Adriana feels very proud when her customers look satisfied and return to buy the tacos. She will use the loan to purchase ingredients to continue working and covering the household expenses and her daughters' education. She is planning to expand her business by buying more tables and chairs. Her dreams and hopes are to get her daughters ahead and give them a future and a career. The members of the group thank Kiva and the Realidad Foundation for the financing.

In this group: Gregoria, Soila, Adela, Benigno, Adriana
