San Roque Group's story

San Roque is the name of the group which consists of 25 women from the city of San Lorenzo, all of whom are friends and neighbours from the same city. They got together with the desire to progress and get ahead as they wish to give their children and families a better future. They describe themselves as determined, hardworking and very honest women.

One of these hardworking women is Señora Caren who with a lot of effort and thanks to her sales of sheets, has been able to grow and get ahead. She says that she is doing very well as she has very good sales due to an established client base. She is asking for the loan to buy more sheets with which to stock up and have more in stock as well as be able to meet her customers' demands. She is grateful to both Kiva and the Fundacion for the opportunity they give her.

In this group: Maria Asuncion, Sandra, Cinthia, Juana, Ramona, Alicia, Felecia, Ana, Mirtha, Silveria, Castorina, Graciela, Maria, Judith, Maria, Nunila, Zulma, Adelia, Angela, Sandra, Nilda, Caren, Leonicia, Sixta*, Marciana*
