Virgen De Itatí Group's story

The Virgen D. Itati communal bank is comprised of 21 women. All of them are hard-working and tenacious women. They work day to day to get ahead in order to help their children and their relatives. They want a better future for them, and that is why they put forth their maximum efforts.

Miguelina is one of the members. She is a seamstress, and this work supports her family and everyone who is dependent upon her.

She says that she always has a lot of orders and work. Therefore it is going very well for her. Her dream is to be able to continue growing and to have a large seamstress shop where she would be able to employ other people.

She is requesting the help from the Fundación and from Kiva to buy fabric, thread, needles, and other needed supplies for her workshop. The loan will be a big help in completing her orders.

In this group: Carmen, Angelina, Liz, Miguelina, Dallys, Edith, Estela, Gladys, María, Teresa, Carina, Cinthia, Lidia, Antonia, Diana, Norma, Juliana, Claudina*, Blanca*, Fátima*, Yolanda*
